You meant to say "tracing the real source of a fraud email ".
You have to have access to the header. You will find the senders IP in the first line (from the bottom up) labled "Received". Some web-mail services don't give you acces to the headers. For Yahoo mail check down on the botom right hand side and click on "Full Headers". Most mail applications such as Thunderbird, Kmail, Outlook etc, will let you see the headers.
