Hi there,

Is there any software out there that can track the origin of the email

If for instance someone is faking the email etc, I would like to be able to trace the original sender to a company domain etc.

Thanks

Max

There are literally 1000 possible scenarios and in theory 99% of all e-mail should be tracable, The question will be whether you have the resources and legal standing to do so.

This page covers a lot of possible scenarios...If you post something more specific I will try to point you in the right direction on how to proceed.
