Trace Email Address
Trace email address using the whois database to retrieves the geographic location of email addresses. Email address is traced by reading the email header and obtainin the source IP address (Where did the email come from).
The series of "Received" headers are the trail that tells us from where the message was sent, and along what path or series of servers it traveled across the internet. And this is why we started at the bottom, as each mail server adds a received header to the top.
As part of spam prevention mail server typically enforce matching of the IP address reported matches the server name reported, which in turn should match the end of the HELO string. However, the internet is a little too fast and loose for that to be a reliable authenticity. There are too many legitimate servers are not configured to report the right information for that check to always be valid.
However, eEmail headers cannot be trusted for spam elimination. Legitimate email we can trace email address, but not for SPAM and virus-generated email where headers are not absolutely trustworthy.
