i get lots of emails and many times i would like to trace from whom they are, i.e. are they from the usual spam emails hiding behind an IP address and although declaring that they are from whatever country, but are operating from your own very doorstep of the U.S.
is there any free documentaion on how and what to make out from the email headers so that i can identify who they really are. Also I guess there are many tricks some of them use to hide, and also to find if this is what they are.
Or has someone written a comprehensive book, I know that the IT is revolving, but something that is close to the latest infomation, would help.
Also to understand the various terminology and what they mean when i trace an IP address, like "Microsoft hosting", etc. etc.
