    So, if you can help with it here it is - -
    I am actually quite new to Internet, and not a big fan of it really. But, I love email. So, I am trying to work out how to trace emails.

    I go to the email, and click the down-arrow that gives the menu with the See Original option. I see the read out, but here's the thing. the X Received line, which is supposed to be my IP address is some weird old short thing starts "by2002..." what is that? Also, when i run that code into the IP Tracer it locates me somewhere in Sweden, but notes that there is an error.

    How can I trace it?

    Also, if I trace it can I see the person's name and town....what does it tell me about the sender?

    Why do you want to trace a sender?
    Are you planning to do malicious things like hacking for example?

    You can't trace thru email, especially not in any reliable way. End of story.
