    I just wanted to know if Gmail passes IP in its headers? How about other main providers (yahoo etc)?

    Gmail will only include the IP in the headers when you use smtp to send email. If you use webmail to send no IP will be included.

    All other major providers include IP in the header even if webmail is used to send the message.

    hi

    i think not only IP iy tracks sevrer you've using provider so everything kan be traced diwn. However looping through severa;l server will hide wher you originate from.

    so use chain if ypu want ot hide yourself
