Help tracking Yahoo mail

guess asked 3 years ago

Hi - am trying to trace an yahoo mail. Thanks for all the info provided in the forum , much appriciated. but when i look at the header, this is what i end up with

Received: from [] by

and when i do a ip address look up , i get a message - "IP is a local address".  😮

WHAT does this mean 😕 If the traffic is thru a router, should the actual router IP not be displayed ? Can anyone help me explain what is happening ?!?

Can you paste more of the header for us to review. Please 'x' out any sensitive data.

But you're right, the router IP should be displayed and not the 192.168.x.x IP.

I've not heard of header spoofing in Yahoo! mail, but it might be possible.
