Relax. If this person is using a browser to do their email, then it's very likely that the IP address is that of the web server and has nothing to do with where they are located.

From the IP adress alone, you can't really know.
If she always uses a webmail client, it would be the webmail provider's IP adress you see, regardless of where she is.

I don't know that many persons who know how to define the SMTP serverm IDs in their mail program. All these persons would have to rely on a webmail service when when on vacation.
