Location of email sender

Afternoon All,

Is there any way of finding out if an email has come from within the uk or outside of the uk??? Possibly within the internet headers?

Sort of. You can identify the address of the mail server which sent the email (by using the message headers, as you state).

You can then try to geolocate that server address. That's not 100% reliable, but it should at least tell you if the address is inside or outside the UK.

Look at the Internet Headers for the message (Right-click message and select "Options")

Look for "Received: from" lines. These come in reverse order. So the first one you see should identify your own mail server. The last one should identify the originating mail server (there may be several intermediate servers, depending on the route the message took. It would look something like this:

"Received: from somecompany.co.uk (mail.somecompany.co.uk [143.166.148.223])"

Take that IP address and go to a geolocating service, like geody.com. Paste the address into the Geolocate box and hit submit. It will give you a location for that IP address based on DNS records.

Since large companies may have a business address that doesn't necessarily correspond to their server location, this amount to a best guess. But it will give you something to go on.

Good Luck!

Cannot open my emails


Which email acc.????...
Windows Live Hotmail allows users to view attachments within a Web browser or save them to the system's hard drive.
If Hotmail can't open an attachment, the problem lies with an incompatible file format or Hotmail's automatic blocking service.
You may need new software for opening unfamiliar formats, while blocked files are permanently inaccessible from within Hotmail.
Accessing these files requires action by the sender or forwarding the file to a different email client. Incompatible File Format
Occasionally a sender may attach a file that simply doesn't work with any software you have installed on the system.
Attempting to open the attachment will result in a "Windows cannot open this file" message or similar error display.
Many programs use very specific file formats that don't operate with most other software, such as Photoshop's PSD image files or Microsoft PowerPoint's PPT files.
Ask the sender to convert the file to a more widely compatible format, or install the appropriate software on the system to open the attachment.

Blocked Attachments
Hotmail blocks attachments it believes may contain unsafe or otherwise malicious code.
This includes any and all executable file types, including MSI, EXE, HTML, STC and COM files, along with many others.
Attachments blocked in this way result in a "Windows Live Hotmail has blocked some attachments" message when viewing the email.
While this service does block many real threats to system security, Hotmail may occasionally deny access to an item from a trusted sender.
Unfortunately, these files become permanently inaccessible once blocked by Hotmail, and accessing them requires using a workaround outside the Hotmail application.
Only attempt to access attachments you trust as safe.


Forward Workaround While Hotmail cannot open blocked attachments, it allows users to forward the message with the blocked file still attached.
Send the file to a different email client, and open the attachment using that account instead. Note other clients may have different security measures, but some will still block access to executable files and other potentially harmful data.

Compression Workaround

Ask the sender to package the attachment into a ZIP, RAR or other compressed file format before attaching.
Hotmail will not block any file type located inside a compressed archive.
Both Windows and OS X can create compressed ZIP files, and free utilities such as Zipeg and 7-Zip can create many other types of archives as well.
Some email clients, such as Gmail, will not allow users to send some file formats, even when packaged into an archive file.

Email flows tracking tool


Hi,

For easily getting the details of all the emails of Exchange 2010 within the organisation I think that you can try in a third party tool named Lepide Exchange Reporter which has the ability to quickly give you a report of all the emails on the basis of the users, size, sender, receiver, date and subject wise and to know more features of this tool you can go to LER

Thanks

Is there a tool which can give a report of the message logs


If you are referring to OWA as Outlook Web Access for your organisation, then your email is likely being handled by a Microsoft Exchange server. You'll need to be able to access the Exchange Administrator in order to turn on logging of OWA events.

You can monitor most other Exchange activity directly by turning on Diagnostic Logging for the components that you need to see. Of course, you cannot view email activity 'outside' of your organisation.

Which version of Exchange Server is being used by your organisation?

I brought my Garmin Nuvi to Ireland but am not getting information and maps for my current location. How can I make it work here.


For the nuvi, you need City Navigator NT - Europe. It's available loaded onto an SD card that you just plug into the unit. Since you're in a hurry, you might want to call Garmin and see if they can suggest a retailer that might have it in stock. Here's their contact information for support in the UK. Good luck!
