I was reading the posts in this forum but I have trouble finding out the IP from an email I sent myself from my hotmail account to my yahoo account (both web based). Here are the headers taken from yahoo:

Authentication-Results:; domainkeys=neutral (no sig)
Received: from (EHLO ( by with SMTP; Sat, 25 Apr 2009 15:00:23 -0700
Received: from SNT105-W32 ([]) by with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.3959); Sat, 25 Apr 2009 15:00:23 -0700
Return-Path: [email protected]
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="_f7584c52-6517-4bfd-9733-ace8fbbf967d_"

How would it be possible to determine the IP from this header?

Best Regards.
