Try if this works, regester his email at this site http://www.readnotify.com/ and then here is another link that trace emails but this one is not free http://www.abika.com/Reports/verifyemail.htm use a linux box and then do a DIG command on the domain name DIG is Domain Information Groper. Also see this link to read so much more on email headers and the exact way email works http://www.expita.com/header1.html and then here is a website where you can download very good software like this one http://www.emailtrackerpro.com/ try the demo and if you like it then search for it on http://www.piratebay.org to download the full version for free. I hope this help a bit.

alright dood, just last night i was working on some hacking and i found a great way to trace an EMAIL. Okay do download this thing called EmailTracker Pro 2008.
You only got 15 days, but make the best of it . All you have to do is find the header
of an email. The help option on the program will show u how to find the header of an email
on almost any email account. You copy and paste the header into the program (you'll figure all of this stuff out on the program) and click enter and it will give u the ip of the person
who sent the email and it will tell you their exact location! its really cool.
