Question about Microsoft Office Outlook 2003 for PC
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 [188.8.131.52])"
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.
