You can tracert to the recipient MX. I mean if you want to send an email to hotmail. Tracert to hotmail.com MX server.

You can use message tracking for internal and external routing for verification. The internal emails are routed based on Active Directory Site and Services connection. For external routing you can only know the email status and the next IP on which email is routed.

To know the number of hops the email routes through is depended on the network connectivity and can be traced through tracert.
