We have a client receiving harassing e-mails in her AOL webmail account.  These e-mails have been sent from another AOL account and the headers are lacking in information.  The message source displays the following:
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=
X-Mailer: AOL 9.1 sub 5003

The return path and the from fields are just the sender's e-mail address, none of the other information appears to be useful in tracing the e-mails, and the usually helpful Originating IP is not listed.  Is it possible to get any more info out of this header?

We also suggested thatthe client send an e-mail to the harasser from a non-aol account in the hopes that a reply to it would yeild more information, but when she did she received a message that the account had been closed, so no go there either.
