    Got a friend who is having some marital problems, basically she filed a restraining order, but in order for it to be valid he has to atleast acknowledge that he knows about it.

    Well the other day he tried to call her at the office. The number came up as ISDN - Basically meaning it was blocked.

    Well he also sent her an e-mail. We have the e-mail but is there anyway to determine where it was sent from? Like can we call Yahoo? Thats what provider he used.

    Obviously everyone has an IP address, and most likely he is in a Hotel, and I would imagine a hotel would have a permanent address.

    Note - I found a site that looks up to see who the IP is registed to. But is there a way to see location?

    Or should I say a hotel would have its own IP subnet etc?

    Help?

    The e-mail with have a header which you view showing the IP adress from which it originated. Just hit view header or something in the yahoo account.

    There is also software which shows you area's where an IP comes from. Not sure about whether it waill say the exact adress. It's like the tracing software you see in the movies.

    Edfortunatly I cannot remember the name of it. I would suggest looking at some hacking sites to find out what it is.

    There are process servers that do this for a living. Hire one. Its worth it.

    Unfortunately it wasn't sent to another Yahoo account or I could.

    It was sent to a personal ISP account so there isn't any head info

    If this were someone trying to keep a stalker AWAY, then they could use a process server to find him and deliver the notice. If this is a STALKER, though... hmmmmm...
