can someone see which IP address an email was sent from?

Hi, i didnt know where to post this. so my question is, Can someone see which city, state, area, Ip address they received an email from? like, suppose i got an email in my Hotmail account from someone. Is there any way i can see where they sent it from? city, state, general area, or ip address?

Thanks!

this page should help you:

johnru.com/active-whois/headers-yahoo-gmail-hotmail.html#hotmail

then use an ip lookup site to see the city and state. keep in mind some people mask their ips with proxys. And sometimes the location given from ip lookup sites may reflect the city and state of the persons ISP (internet service provider) and then also sometimes the location may not be the persons actual city--but one close by and sometimes a state away.

there is no way to exactly pinpoint the location of an ip address, unless you are gov or unless you know the "right" people.
