Hello , im a newbie on this forum , hope im posting in the right section for my question regarding email headers.
I've been receiving personal emails , supposedly from two different persons, from different locations, from 3 email addresses ( 2 hotmail 1 yahoo ) , both in the US , one in California , the other in Mississippi , actually one of the emails was supposedly sent from the Middle East, namely Iraq !
Recent events made me wonder about the person's backround and truthfulness , so i looked at the " email headers " i've compared the details of all 3 ...
the " From " IP address is identical in all 3 emails.
Can an email sent from Iraq have the same IP as one sent from the US ?
Does this mean what i think it means?
That i have been made to believe that im corresponding with 2 different persons, when in fact someone has played "tricks" on me ?
I think i know that the answer is " YES " but would like to be sure!

If the IP addresses match, more than likely the emails came from the same computer, and it's on a fixed IP address (broadband). If you are using some sort of service, the emails all may be routed through a central computer, which would also indicate the same IP address. If these ladies said they did not work together or live together, I would question their integrity.
