Spread the love

In the next steps, you’ll learn how to find the locations of the email sender you received.

It is currently not possible to determine the location of message senders in Gmail.

Google is currently masking the sender’s IP address, so we can’t determine its location.

However, we can use another technique described here: How to find someone’s location online

The technique of tracking the sender is to extract the IP address with the e-mail header.

To perform the operation we will need the following tools:
– Mozilla Thunderbird (you can download here)
– Online tool: https://www.iplocation.net/trace-email

Steps:

  1. Downloading and installing Mozilla Thunderbird
  2. Adding your email account to which we received an email from the sender we want to check.
  3. Synchronization / Download of all messages from e-mail inbox to Thunderbird.
  4. Obtaining the message header from the sender that we want to check using option More -> View Source.
  5. Copying mail source to https://www.iplocation.net/trace-emailil
  6. Click: “Submit” and you will see the sender location.
