Trace an Email Address – Reverse Email Lookup

Have you ever received an email from someone and really wanted to know who sent it. I’m not talking about finding out who sends you spam or junk mail. I’m talking about a harrassing, threatening, or suspicious email; or maybe even an email you found on your spouses computer (you know, the one he or she didn’t want you to read).

Trace an Email Address - Reverse Email Lookup

Until now there really wasn’t an effective method for identifing the individuals behind these email addresses. Searchbug recently finalized an agreement with an expert in email route tracing. These experts have a lot of experience, an excellent track record, and a good success rate. Of course it’s not a 100% fool-proof method, but they offer a pretty darn good guarantee if they can’t locate any information.

No one can guarantee a full name and address for every email address in the world, but our new reverse email lookup is the next best thing. If you want to know how to help a friend with a cheating spouse or have access to emails you want traced, this is the search that will help answer the “who is sending this email?” question.

All you need is the “target” email address (the email address you are seeking the information about) and one of the email headers. If you don’t know how to obtain the email headers please read my last blog article “how to find email headers“.

There are several methods you can use to do this yourself but you will need a few things.

  1. A heck of a lot of time.
  2. Lots of patience (don’t mind the frustration trying to sort through all the email header information).
  3. Software to locate the ISP of the sender
  4. The ability to further the investigation to obtain the subject’s name and address.

If you do figure out how to successfully locate the name and address of an email sender, we would appreciate your comments in this blog. It will inevitably help others save time, frustration, money, and hopefully send a message to harrassing email senders that they can be found.
