All you can do is to analyze fields of e-mail message (right click on e-mail and choose Document - Properties and go to second tab).

There is really no way unless the sender put something in the email that identifies them.  If you get threatening emails however you may be able to get a court order if those emails are breaking the law.  

Short of that, you are out of luck.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Then there's no way.

of course you could always try to hack the Matrix.  All you need to do is line up the 9 cubes while drinking a glass of wine.

Regardless of that personal info, does the e-mail look like spam, or it looks like regular e-mail you get from your friends/colleagues?

Could it be that you simply forgot you meet someone? Perhaps a long time ago.
Maybe, if you're not sure, you should reply him (he already knows your e-mail address) and ask.

If you're sure it's spam, let me ask you, what kind of personal info it is?

I have had that happen to me before as well, where someone that i knew got a new email address and sent me an email. you could always try the old fashion way and ask who it is.

it is a massage sent to me by some one who knows me very well , and the personal info sent was something about some personal issues in the place were I work and it contains some dangerous things which made me so eager to know who the sender is .....
