  • Received mail from Private IP

    Hi.. Today i received one email from unknown. When i take a look into headers in order to find out the IP informations, it shows The Header shows no other IP other than this. Is it possible to send Email from Private IP address? and is it possible to track the Location of that IP? Thanks in advance.

    probably someone within your internal network ? that would be my first guess.

    however - to answer your question, on a technical level, yes, it's possible to send email from an rfc1918 address - in fact, you should be able to do anything from a 1918 address that you can from a normal address.

    an rfc1918 addres is still an address, and still handled by tcpip the same..
