    I was told by a guy at SpamHaus that Google sends an encrypted IP address under this header, X-Google-Sender-Auth which discloses the original location of the sender? Does anyone know how to decrypt it?
    Any help will be highly appreciated...

    It may not be something you can decrypt, it may require for instance a secret key held by Google.

    Considering Google is probably a couple steps behind (or ahead) of NSA good luck decrypting something they dont want decrypted lol.

    Considering the pretty small number of possible IPs currently, they may well be using a one time pad encryption, or at least should, in which case you and anyone else don't have a chance.
