An overseas IP address question

I realize that I'm posting this in the locked forums and I'd like to keep this as private as possible.

 

1.) If you use hotmail to email from will the email show a US IP or an overseas IP?  I have a friend who is telling me he's stationed in Iraq and I'm questioning it. He's emailed me from his hotmail account and when I go to do an email trace I get  a US Ip address that is in Virginia. Is this possible since he's using hotmail?

 

This is the site that I am using:

Any help would be appreciated.

 Hes more than likely using a US government satellite internet conenction from Iraq. Being that most military satellites center out of Virginia (quantico, norfolk, etc) its quite possible that hes telling the truth. However, that said, without seeing the actual IP its impossible to give a better answer.
