How to see IP V4 MessageTrackingLog Source IP Address

Hello Guys,

Is there any way to see Ip Address of source email.

I tried with get-messagetrackinglog but its showing me IP V6 Address.

Is there  any command to see the IPV4 Address and disable IP V6 .

Murtaza

You should not be disabling IPv6.

Microsoft do not support Exchange with IPv6 disabled and do not test that scenario.

I never disable IPv6 on any server I maintain or build and have never had a problem. I actually see MORE problems with servers where people have tried to disable IPv6, which go away when that process is removed. Get used to IPv6 - it is going to be the only way to work sooner than you think.

this can be simply done by checking an email's header to determine the IP address where the email was sent out. you no need to access the Exchange server for obtaining such info, any email client software can do that.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

If the message was sent over IPv6, then you cannot get IPv4 information for it. Simply not possible. They are likely to be different servers, maybe even different networks.

Therefore if all you are seeing is the IPv6 address then you will have to work on that for the source.
