    I don't think you can get a street address. As for IP address, maybe. I think it depends which email program you use.

    Actually, you even get the cubicle number. :-D

    Most email clients allow you to see an advanced view of the mail with all the "headers". This will have IP addresses etc.
    You would have to forward this full version to your email provider (such as hotmail or yahoo or your ISP) in order for them to investigate. Typically they would only do this if someone is harassing you - I've never asked them so I don't know how much they would help out.

    Your ISP could bar the service to that person if the offence is serious.
