it's technically possible depending on where you're getting the mail....if you're using outlook you can check the headers on the email...you can do the same with Gmail and some other web accounts...this will give you the originating mail server's info...with that and some tools you can track that back to a country...but that's not guaranteed to be an accurate representation of where the mail originated...especially if he's using webmail...those servers are distributed across the planet...so their ip's aren't always in the country that the person sent the mail from

Dsenette,

Thanks for your quick reply. I don't know whether I will get exact information or not. But I will check according to you.

Thanks again.
