for hotmail...
in your inbox right click the message that you wanna know where it can from and click "view message source." it should bring you to a new page. the page should have all kinds of crazy stuff on it. the first thing that should be on the page should be "X-Message-Delivery:{then some stuff here...all codey crap...}
you then just look down the page till you see
"X-Originating-IP: [xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx]"
and what ever is in the place of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is where it came from.

i think that this process is farely similar for other mail providers. you should just have to find the headers, and the origination ip should be in there. if you have troubles finding it then please tell me the mail provider you need help with and i will try my best to find out how it is done for you.
I must have given you the wrong impression. I'm familiar with the process used to find the sender's IP address, but gmail somewhat recently began to display the originating IP as some sort of hash, which is what I was referring to when I mentioned viewing the IP address regardless of gmail's obfuscation of it. Thanks for the info, though. Didn't mean to hijack your thread.
