Using the MAC address may not work, but try some of the tools (many of which are free) to look up an IP address. The sender can spoof the address though, which means it is false. There are also websites that will analyze an email for you and provide sender information via the headers.

Good luck.

Mail headers/GeoIP

by Choppit In reply to HOW TO TRACE EMAIL SENDER ...

Look at the mail headers to find the SMTP host IP (as already mentioned, this may have been spoofed). Then Google for a GeoIP tool to lookup the IP. Sometimes a traceroute will also give you clues to the location.

Here's a clue.

If you somehow get a MAC address in an email header, it would have to be in your LAN.

Otherwise, with the IP address, you camn either do a visual traceroute, IP geolocation. or get the Ip resolved (which would tell you who their ISP is, anyway).
