I have pasted a sample of the header information I was referring too. This is from Yahoo web mail. I believe you said you were using Outlook Express as your e-mail client? If I remember correctly you can right click on the e-mail and from the context menu select to view header information. Or you may have to go to Options to turn on viewing of headers.
I've changed IP and domain name information :-)

If you read through the header you will see a line Received: from XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX (HELO Exchange.somedomain.net) (XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX) by mta449.mail.mud.yahoo.com with SMTP; Thu, 24 May 2007 07:29:31 -0700
