Email tracing

By parthiv_13 ·
One of my friend is getting some porn and bad wording emails. Now problem is its ID is like similer as his own ID( if its ABC@yahoo.com then other ID may be ABCD@yahoo.com). I know we can trace that from email header. But its not working. There may be some mistake from my side to interpret them. But as per me I am sure that I have interpreted them almost 99% right.

Is there anyway to traceout that email person's PC....? And is there any authorised site where we can complain this Cyber Crime sort of thing...?

Thank you in advance.

The header of the email may show a lot of information but in this case I'm sure the header has been altered. Usually the people who specialize in SPAM will send email through someone elses server so tracing it back doesn't do any good because they will be using another server the next day. What you need is a good SPAM filter. Yahoo has a good one if you enable it.
