Hi Keven,

I had to clean up your post. We don't really need to know why you're tracing an email, nor do we need all of the header information as it contains email addresses and IP addresses that don't need to be published.

Aside from that, the originating IP can be found in the header. It's listed as:
X-Originating-IP: [64.nn.nnn.nn]

The n's are numbers, but I don't want to display them publicly. That should give you enough information to see the IP I'm talking about.

It IS NOT the same IP address you posted from so I can't determine if the emails are coming from inside your house or not. And since the email is coming through AOL, I'm pretty certain any IP traced in any email will point back to their headquarters and not the actual city from which the email originated.
