Is he from Portugal Or Thailand?

IP Address Questions and AnswersCategory: Trace An EmailIs he from Portugal Or Thailand?
jollygreenxxx asked 3 years ago

Im trying to track down the location of this sender. He tells me he is currently in Portugal, though originally I thought he was in Thailand.

When I send a email to myself through hotmail, a originating ip comes up. When I look at the info from his email no originating ip comes up. There is a ip that shows Bangkok.

His he telling me the truth and he is currently living in portugal, or is he really in Thailand? Or is there no real way of telling?

Thanks for your help

The first IP in the header is and it traces to California....which is probably the Yahoo servers.

However, deep down in the email header, you'll see That IP traces to Bangkok.

I'd say the person you received the email from is in Bangkok.
