  • Is proxy server is secure

    Iam doing r& d on email headers,i want to trace an ip ad of the sender,so i change my firefox proxy server setting to 200.55.48.12 and port 8080 this is the proxy server ip ad, actual my public ip ad is 202.45.25.41.

    But when i send an email ad from yahoo to gmail and when i check the email headers ,the ip ad of the sender is similar to my public ip ad even though i had change it to proxy server.

    when we set our computer to proxy server and when we visit some website,the webserver see the proxy ip ad and not our real ip ad.

    so then when i check th email headers it shows the real ip ad and not the proxy ip ad.

    so what would be the reason.

    And "is proxy server is secure".

        Nothing on the internet is very secure.
        I dont know why you need to use proxy but if you will track things down,
        there will be always a way to capture your real IP.

        Legal issues - well, this depand on your company/country policy. You may
        need to consult with a lawer etc.

          your proxy has nothing to do with your e-mail address.
          as long as the mail goes out from your computer, no proxy can hide it.

          you can use programs like Anonymail which allows you to send E-Mail messeges with spoofed SMTP address, which for some organizations could be considered illegal via policy and will not be accepted, so be careful with that.
