Hi vage78,
Depends on where you are receiving the email .. Using the header information of the email you can check unless the sender has faked the information which is not that easy to do

If you are using outlook or outlook express or any email client, right-click the email and check properties for header

If you are using web based email like yahoo , click on the email and then click on "full headers" to look for that header information from which you can get the IP address

Thanks

Hi vage78,

An easy trick, and works a lot of times:

Search for the e-mailaddress in google, it might come up with some interesting info.

Greetings,

Is there any other way to do it from a Solaris machine?
I mean from any unix machine I mean reverse lookup etc.
I have not received an email from that email address. I just want to know to whom belongs an email address

How are you viewing email in Solaris ?

Are you just using Pine or using the mail client in solaris ? If you are using mail client, check the properties/headers of the email
