I received an e-mail in Outlook Inbox from USPS Service <status_item@usps.com> with the attachment Label_Parcel_USPS_13-114.zip

However, the ip address in the e-mail message header is 192.244.203.83

How can I find out "who is" or "what is" using 192.244.203.83 on our network?

Thanks for your help.

This is not an internal IP, it will be coming externally from one of the many spam bots around the world.

Doing an IP lookup will show you roughly where.

The first "Received:" line tells you who it came from.  It is just spam.  They faked all the other email addresses.

Thank you very much.  When I pinged 192.244.203.83, I got 4 replies.  I thought that because the IP address began with 192, that it was a computer or device located in my office, but "tobyweston" said it was not an internal IP.
