    I already said in my query that Gmail hides the ip of sender using encryption and even the link that you gave fails to retrieve ip using headers. Arul john has also mentioned about gmail hiding ip in the very link that you gave.

You need all the detail of your email account from your service provider who set up your email account. With this detail you go on internet and put in the account nr, and password, you get from your service provider. This is one way to trace your old emails

Track an email in Gmail

An email can easily be traced by opening its header but this technique fails when an email is to be traced sent from gmail account as gmail hide's the sender i.p. using a 64 bit encryption.
so to trace the location of a person, we can use readnotify free service.

Read Notify

What is ReadNotify?
ReadNotify is the most powerful and reliable email tracking service that exists today. In short - ReadNotify tells you when email you sent gets read / re-opened / forwarded and so much more.

Make an account at and compose a mail to the person you want to trace from the email id you used to create account at
Simply add: to the end of your recipients email address
if the email to be traced is then use the email in recipient's email
and then send the email as a normal mail.
the moment the receiver opens that mail, you will get all the information listed below by logging into your account at

Information you can get with the help of read notify-

  • Date and time opened

  • Location of recipient (per their ISP city /town)

  • Map of location (available on paid subscriptions)

  • Recipients IP address

  • Apparent email address of opening (if available)

  • Referrer details (ie; if accessed via web mail etc)

  • URL clicks

  • How long the email was read for

  • How many times your email was opened

  • If your email was forwarded, or opened on a different computer

    How do I change my screen name

    Change your username If you use Gmail with your Google Account, it's not currently possible to change your Gmail username after you've registered unless you want to delete Gmail from your account and use a different, non-Gmail address for your Google Account. You can also create another Google Account with a different Gmail username.
    If you don't use Gmail with your Google Account, you can change your account username to another email address at any time. Your username is the full email address you used to create your account.
    To change the email address on your account, just follow these steps:
    1. Visit the Google Accounts homepage.
    2. Sign in to your account.
    3. Click Edit in the Email section.
    4. Enter your new email address and your current password.
    5. Click Save email address.
    Once you've saved the change, you should receive a verification message at the email address you just entered. To complete the change, you'll need to click the verification link in this message. You should also receive a message at your old email address confirming that we've registered the change to your account. If you don't receive the verification email, check your spam folders or request a new email.
    • You can't change the email address on your account to an existing Gmail address, but we invite you to add a new Gmail address to your Google Account.
    • You can't change the email address on your account to an email address that's already associated with a Google Account.
    • If you want to make your alternate email address the new primary address, you'll first need to delete your alternate email address from the account.
    • The account username that you choose needs to be an active, valid email address that you can access.

    You have told me there is a problem on my account by email

    Which account are you referring to ?..
    Make sure the email was coming from the right source it might be spam or spyware.?
    If you do not recognize the name of a sender in the "From" field on an email message, you can choose to see additional details, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which the email was sent, that by default are not displayed.
    Find the Source on Outlook Express
    Double-click on the email for which you want to find the source on the Outlook Express window.
    Click on the "File" menu and then click on "Properties."

    Click on the "Details" tab on the dialog box that opens and then click on "Message Source."
    You will be shown all the details of the email, including the IP address from which it was sent.
    Find the Source on Gmail/Yahoo Mail
    Log in to your Gmail/Yahoo Mail account.

    Click to open the email for which you want to find the source.

    Click on the downward-pointing arrow next to the "Reply" button.
    Then for Gmail, click on "Show original."
    For Yahoo Mail, click on the downward-pointing arrow next to the "Action" button and then click on "Full Header."
    You will be shown the details of the email.

    Strange emails in gmail

    Most likely someone you have sent an email to in the past has had their computer hacked, exposing your email address, and now your email address is on a distribution list.

    Nothing you can really do about this but mark as spam and possibly set up a gmail filter with some consistent common feature in the subject or message to always send them to spam or trash.
