When I send mail from Outlook it always contains my computers name and my local ip address in the form 'Received from [xxxxxxxxx] [zzz.zzz.zzz.zzz]' where x is my desktop name and z is my desktop ip. I am not trying to be anonymous I have no problem sending all routing info. and email address info. in my header but the detailed 'Received from' info of my local computer is a huge security risk i.m.o. So does anyone know how to prevent outlook sending my local computers ip address?

Hi DColin,
I can't tell you how to hide your originator IP, but I can tell you that if you do, your mail will bounce on many e-post offices because it will be considered as an attempt to hide your identity.

Kind regards,
Sven
