How to Get an IP From an Outlook Email


Each email received contains properties that show where it originated. It shows details like who it was from, when it was sent, when it was relayed between servers and to whom the email is addressed to. It also shows technical details like the IP address of the sender and the content type, whether it's HTML, plain text or it contains any attachments. This email information are all under "Internet headers."

  • Open an email from Microsoft Outlook.

  • Click "File" and "Properties" for Outlook 2007 and later versions. For Outlook 2003 and earlier, click "View" and "Options."

  • Browse "Internet headers" and look for the entry "Received:" It will show an IP address.

    There could be several "Received:" lines each showing an IP address. These IP addresses pertain to the user's IP address and the mail servers that relayed the email. To verify the user's IP address, scroll down to the bottom, which has a "Received" word. It contains the user's IP address, too.
