I also noticed there is only originating email but not originating IP anymore in the header, so how can I trace it now?

Someone any idea??

Here is a sample:

I'm a little bit confused as to why we can't get a straight answer tho?
I might of missed it as well....

Why was it removed and will it come back. I, too, would like to now how to trace it again.
Getting hotmail ip is really pointless.

@KeekeeMX

Are you experiencing this issue from a certain sender only? There are instances that Hotmail masks the Originating IP to prevent spammers from using this information. It is also possible that the sender is using In Private IP, that is why it is masked on the message source.

Thank you.

Hello Julius Cesar,

no this problem is certainly not confined to a certain sender. Since the beginning of December I think this is happening with all the hotmail messages I receive. Also the hotmail messages from people of which I am sure do not use In Private IP. I don't understand the 'replacement' in the header where it says: X-EIP....and then a sort of hash......What could this be?

I think this were originally was the X-originating IP.

So, it is not one sender.

Thanks for thinking about this.

I agree with cloggieUU, something happens and I'm surprised and I feel insecure every time I check my email.

What could this be?

2 different people send me an email. Both uses hotmail. No one uses In Private Ip.
I specifically asked them to send me an email just for this.

Thanks KeekeeMX, I also asked people, in the family to send me mail. It is making me not only weary but insecure, I want to be sure where mail is originating from and to me this is the only way to check it. I thought that an IP address was always in the header...Maybe forged, but there should be an IP address there, shouldn't it?
