Hotmail sender's IP address
There used to be an option on the old Hotmail where you could enable seeing the ip address and other isp details of a sender.
Is this option still available in the new Live Hotmail? If so, could somebody please guide me?

Thank you.

How to See Full Email Headers in Windows Live Hotmail or MSN Hotmail?

When you want to trace spam to its source and report the network abuse to the ISP, or to see mailing list commands hidden in header lines, it is important to see the mail's full headers.

By default, Windows Live Hotmail and MSN Hotmail show only a few important headers, but you can make them display all header lines.
See Full Email Headers in Windows Live Hotmail

To see the full email including all header lines in Windows Live Hotmail:

* Click on the desired message in the list with the right mouse button.
* Select View source from the menu.

See Full Email Headers in MSN Hotmail

To make MSN Hotmail display all header lines:

* Select Options from the top MSN Hotmail navigation bar.
* Make sure the Mail category is selected.
* Choose Mail Display Settings.
* Set Message Headers to Full.
* Click OK.

Now you can go back to the MSN Hotmail Inbox (or any folder) to open a message with full headers.
