    Ok, this may sound weird, but I want to know if there is a way to get the IP address used by someone sending me emails? Yes, in the end I want to find his address.

    Long story short: this guy is trying to extort me, and I have filed a police report already, but I am trying to help the cops find his address so they can arrest him, since I don't know how much effort they are going to put into this investigation.

    I know his general area of where he lives. And I have 3 old emails sent from him before he has cut off communication.

    I *might* be able to get him to reply again if need be, but that would rely on some trickery from a new email address etc and would be hard to do, so any method using the old emails would definately be preferable.

    PLEASE help me help the cops!
