Guide Review - eMailTrackerPro 2007 - Email Tracking Tool
A look at the email headers will, at least in most cases, reveal the whereabouts of the spammer, or at least who their Internet Service Provider is. Unfortunately, decoding these headers manually is cumbersome, boring and time-consuming. Fortunately, there is eMailTrackerPro.
Feed eMailTrackerPro with the headers, and it will analyze them to eventually present the sender's geographic location and either their or their ISP's IP address and contact information. Based on this analysis, eMailTrackerPro makes it easy and comfortable to send abuse reports to the ISPs providing the spammer with network access.
While generally accurate, these reports could be improved by looking up working complaint department addresses at abuse.net.
