    I'm confused :confused:

    There are 2 "X-Originating-IP" addresses ( and in the header below. Which is which? Is one the network (ATT) and the other, the user's local machine?

    Thank you.

    When trying to trace an email's route from sender to recipient you read from bottom up. In your partial header is not the sender's address; the other address may be.
