everything you need to know is in the message header. depending on your mail client it differs on how to get that information. Outlook is right click->message options cut and paste the contents of the internet headers box into something like
I am still very conofused!
How MANY IP and ISP do I "have"?
Over the years I have used (and still use)
Outlook Express, Outlook, Mozilla Firefox, GoogleChrome
and the (ISPs?) BT Internet, UK2.net, xtra.co.nz and Googlemail and Gmail
on both dialup and broadband
on a series of different computers but the same BT landline
My portable uses the restaurant over the road by radio
So how many "identities" do I have?
How can I make it clear that this is the same esdel to all my contacts?
(And if I say "This is esdel" will they believe me!
What "private" info can I give without risk?)
Many thanks with your help with what turns out to be such a complex question!
TCP/IP stands for Transmission control protocol/Internet Protocol that’s what allows computers on the internet to talk to each other think of it as their postal address. Each server that handles mail should have a unique IP Address assigned typically by and ISP(Internet Service Provider) The IP address usually is associated with a name Using DNS(Domain Name System) The other piece of this that relates to what you are asking is SMTP This protocol is the commonly accepted method based on RFC Standards that control how email is transferred from one system to the other. If an email message is valid it will comply to the standards(in a perfect world alot of email doesn't) and contain the required blocks of information within the email message header using the letter analogy this would be the equivalent of the from and to address so my original post naturally centered around that hidden piece of every email message. it Should contain your email address as either the recipient or the sender depending on whether you are sending or recieving naturally.
