Make your e-mail client show the full headers and you may be able to see an IP, that is said to be the sender. If this is SPAM or other kind of unwanted mail, this IP is probably false. You may at least see the domain from which it comes.

Take a look at www.samspade.org and see if you can find anything useful.

Even showing full headers won't do the trick.  RFC specs don't include headers for the sending machine... only the sending mail server.
