I believe, all of you are aware of the fact that we cannot find the originating IP of a mail sent from a gmail account sent using the web interface (the traditional email header (X-Originating IP)). The only way to find the information is by contacting the google / gmail services. This delays the investigation of a cyber crime which involves a mail sent from a gmail account. Can we have a discussion on the following:
- Is there any other ways to find the originating IP from the headers.?
- How long does Gmail keeps the records?
- Does any one have a similar experience to share?
