What is the best way to track email address? I heard that you can use os x to do it without using third party software. Can i also do an ip locate? I did a search on the forums but came up with nothing.

Thanks

Can't you track where an email came from? ISP, Server, etc.

You can look at the headers of the e-mail for that information, but of course, those are easily forged.

I believe he means like a receipt, which I've found no way of doing as of yet, but basically, it works like this, you send an email, you get an email when the receiving party has opened it to let you know that they got it, good for deadlines and the like.:mac:
