    I'm not sure if other programs offer more properties from an incoming email. I think Outlook gives you all the properties that are available. Others may give a nicer display.

    Have you tried using the senders IP ((if available. sometimes his computer name and IP address are available from the properties)or his/her mailservers DNS or IP (if available) and use a program like window's "tracert.exe" or WinRoute ( http://www.winroute.com ) for a better display of the senders origin.

    Kind regards,

  3. Is that the mail server one? Yeah I did try all of that but can't find everything I need.. The mail is coming from my bb board on my website and I need to track down who is doing it/mailing me..

    Thanks again mate

    If its coming from the BB on your Website, then YOU are the one that's sending the mail. At least your BB is. Doesn't your BB have IP logging or something? That may be a better method of finding him.

    Is he nagging you? ;)

  5. He's not bugging me, but it is kind of annoying.. It does have IP logging, but there are a lot of members and a lot of viewers that I cannot trace it down..

    There is a feature in Norton 2002 that can trace IP's right back to the source - I think it applies to e-mail.

    Unfortuantely I'm not at home just now and won't be until the 5th Nov so I can't give you more details. I've used it before to hunt down admail sources. Basically it's an online feature that you get access to when you register the software.


    I'll come back when I've gone back!
  7. No problem.. thanks guys :-D
