Look in your head section of the email, there is heaps of info there about the route of the email and where it came from

Nothing. Someone sent me a nasty email and I was wondering if I could find out where or who it came from. I suspect it is the same person who is posting stupid comments on our trademe auction and want to confirm it so I can get him bumped from trademe.

In your email settings you have to allow it to view full headers. What programme do you use?

Go File / Properties, and click on the Details tab.

Post it here is you want and we can pull it to bits.

Surely a complaint to them is indicated.

Trademe is place where everyone buy and sell, of course you can meet jealous people in there by posting stupid comments and all that. NEVER GIVE THEM YOUR EMAIL UNLESS THEY BOUGHT YOUR ITEM. :D That's what I do. You can see all kinds of people in there. Just becareful and don't reply stupid comments.
Here's an example I saw few weeks ago: Watcher comment "you r a dic, lol." and what does the seller answer that watcher? "cheers." :eek: lol. The seller was an arab woman anyway, she was a very rude trader.
