Ip address of iphone

son-son asked 3 years ago


I sent a tracked email, as I have someone saying they are not receiving my emails.
Today I got a email saying my sent email had been opened and gave me the following details:

Recipient IP Address:

Recipient Application: Unknown ? (Macintosh)
URL: [Information not available]

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (iPhone; CPU iPhone OS 6_0_1 like Mac OS X) AppleWebKit/536.26 (KHTML, like Gecko) Mobile/10A523

This ip address is for the United States, however the recipient is in the Netherlands. The recipient uses an iphone. They would have been using their home wifi as I know they were home at the time the message was 'opened'.

Does anyone have any advice as to whether this email was opened or not?
Or any explanations as to why a dutch iphone has a usa ip address, there's no way they are tech savvy enough to re-route their ip address. Original email was sent to a hotmail account.

Thanks for any advice

Thanks for your question son-son.

The IP you gave is for a hotmail server. The return receipt for the email should only come back to you when the email is actually viewed. The return receipt would show the hotmail IP when the receiver goes to the hotmail site to view it. If it was downloaded and viewed, the IP of the downloading device should be included in the header.

In your case, it would seen that someone is going to hotmail to see the email. If it's not the intended recipient, then they should change their password on the hotmail site.
