we have a domain called "mydomain" in a private network with static Ip assigned to servers and hosts. and we have a software to manage emails accounts, but it's installed on another PC (not the domain server). someone in the private network use Hotmail to send email to me. let we say that someone@hotmail.com from a PC in the network send email to me@mydomain.com. is there any way to catch which PC send the email? can I get the IP for example?

IP addressses on emails are easily spoofed. Its probaly more effort than its worth - even if it could be done.

you can check the email header to get the IP Address of senders computer. if you are using MS outlook right click on the mail Select Option and you can see whatever the header informations on that Screen.

Getting the IP Address means you can find the PC no ? so i think problem is solved.
