How can I find out where emails are generated from? IP address?
Hi, someone is pranking me by calling the water company and electric company and putting in requests to shut off my utilities via email. They are also signing me up for various magazine subscriptions, landscape, tile and painting quotes etc. Is there any way to diffuse them? They are using MY cell phone number, address and email to put the requests in. I just wanted to know if there was a way to peel off the layers of the emails to see where they are coming from. Any advice?

Re: How can I find out where emails are generated from? IP ...

Depending on your email provider and how they are sending those emails, you may be able to get the ip from one of the message 'headers'.. But, with the ip the best you can do is get an idea of the general location..but, if the person is smart they would probably disguise their IP address by using a proxy, meaning that the IP would be useless..

Re: Is it possible to block an ip address from facebook?
I know you can block people from facebook and use privacy settings for your account. However they can still set up another account and if they search enough find what friends you have and what not. Is there a way to use an ip address of the computer the person you don;t want to search for you and block it from seeing any information about you on facebook. I have the ip number because I have tons of emails from the person?

Re: How do I find out someones IP address to block them?
The problem I am having is I run a website and blog for a non profit foundation. There is one person who comes on the pages and makes comments and removes information off our site and tweets and talks about the foundation. This person is a stalker to us. We have had to block them from our twitter addresses and ban them from our facebook page for the foundation and block them from our personal facebook pages. As they most recently went to our blog and posted a comments I went in and deleted their comment and also edited the page so the space for comments were not available to anyone. So now we are ready to launch an new website and we will be closing the blog down. However the only thing we have to do to have this person totally blocked is to block them from our new website. I contacted the website company and they gave me a code and instructions on how to block this person....but the only thing I need to do is place the IP code to this person into the instructions. And I don't know how to obtain it from this person. I know their twitter account and their facebook account with the about information showing to the public with their FaceBook email address showing and I also know where they post some stuff on another page. Can I use any of these sources to obtain her IP code? If so how? It would be so great if you helped me with this. She also tells others that she mostly posts things from her phone. We ignore this person at all cost...don't want to fuel any fires. And with ignoring them we want our foundation to be safe from them. We try to watch their moves when we see them around so legally if enough is said about us we can involve lawyers but for now till we gather enough we need to protect ourselves. Thank you so much for your help!!

Re: How do I find out someones IP address on a website

Above all, continue to ignore this person. I have dealt with this kind of person many times at this website and responding in any way just eggs them on.. this is apparently how they get the attention that their mother never gave them.

You will never (without legal recourse) get their IP via Facebook or Twitter.. but, since this person visits your website, it should be a simple matter to get and block the IP. You can install any number of (free!) visitor tracking systems that make it easy to track every IP that comes to the website. By default, without you even doing anything, every IP is probably already logged and stored in a file that you should have access to but these packages make it easier. Depending on what your website is 'built' with (Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla, or even plain PHP) you should be able to get add-on modules or scripts that will log the IP every time someone posts a comment. There are also add ons for blocking proxies which cowards like this usually use. The only difficult part i see is that if she posts from her phone, the IP will be different almost every time and you may have to block the entire range of IP addresses for that phone provider which obviously will block other people. If you need more help with this feel free to contact me via my Facebook page (click my picture over on the left) - as I mentioned, i consider myself an expert in a-hole tracking and blocking and I enjoy helping other webmasters.

Re: How do I find out someones IP address to block them?

I have windows 10 and when I sign on to facebook, I go to "security and login in" and find out I am being signed in from many different locations in my state. The ip address is 67.41.243.233 which is not my isp. I do not want somebody else using my provider so how can I block this other address? Would this possibly be coming from my router?

You can't block IP addresses from using Facebook, only Facebook can do that. and even though it's likely those IP's are from your phone (do you use Facebook on your phone?) you can prevent unauthorized use of your Facebook account by enabled 2-Step Verification on your Facebook account. 2-Step Verification will make it virtually impossible for anyone else to use your Facebook account.
