Yahoo Email IP Address Locator Security Issues
Posted on 2014-02-24
Can anyone help me ?
Yahoo recently has 'upgraded' their Yahoo Email applicaton. There are many complaints to Yahoo, but one that has really frustrated me is that it is now very hard to identify the location of the IP Address for the email sender to me.
In the past when you received an email, and you questioned the real location of the sender, you only had to pull down the menu item, MORE, VIEW FULL HEADER, and the header info would display from which the sender's IP Address could be identified and entered into an IP Address locator application for the sender's actual location, i.e., Ghana.
In the latest yahoo email upgrade, this feature has been seriously compromised. The only time this works now is on the initial email one receives from the sender. if one replys, then from that point on, no matter how many emails are replied to, when one pulls down the menu item MORE, PRINT NEWEST is the only option, which has nothing to do with Security and IP Addresses.
I need to know if there are any other ways to identify the sender's IP Address, especially in the middle of a number of replies where the sender may change to another IP Address or computer. And if a reply is made by me, how can i still identify the IP Address for the intial email message to me ?
Added: If no one can help me on this question, can someone tell me how to revert back
to the previous version of Yahoo Email, where security and location could be determined on each email, not just the first one if never replied to. After a reply, all IP locator information is no longer accessibe. But on the previous Yahoo email version(s), the IP locator info is always available. Thanks ahead of time !
