Quick help needed please!

HighlandPeach asked 3 years ago

Can someone tell by my IP address if I'm sending emails from my home city or if I am out of town? I was suppose to send an email while I was in Texas and sent it when I was in Tennessee. Will the recipient be able to figure that out?

Thanks for your question HighlandPeach.

It depends on a couple of factors. If you were sending from gmail, hotmail, or yahoo, then your IP will only be traced back to those services no matter the location. Usually.

If you were sending from Outlook or another mail client installed on your computer, then your local IP at the time might be included in the header. The recipient would have to view the header and find the originating IP and lookup that IP to see where it's from.
