Find out where someon lives from their email?

Post by tattybear on July 12th 2010, 10:50 pm

Hi

I think the same person keeps trying to register on my forum. Now they live in canada and everyone else lives somewhere else.

I can see the email adresses they are using (by going into 'inactive' users) however someone told me i should be able to find their i.p address from their email and therefore tell where in the world they live (not exact address or anything)

How can I do this please?

no, you cannot determine one's ip by their email address.
what if they registered their email address while they were in china and they came back to their home country, using it for life?

its not possible unless you work for their mail service and have access to their list of IPs

Sorry to disbelieve you but I know there is a way because forum owners in the past have told me. I just need to figure out how and I will let you know Smile

well if you have access to the admin CP you can see the IP address of which they signed up with; but it is IMPOSSIBLE to tell their IP address by just knowing their e-mail; you'll have to come in contact with their email service one way or another

no good
you need an acual email sent from them to see header, if pests use dynamic ipadress sever addresses always change or you could simply ban ip address

oh, that sucks, I knew there was a way but didnt think I needed an actual email from them first.

Perhaps I could email them and see if they email me back and then get it :/

Hello,

I;m sorry but here on forumotion that's impossible.
The only way to know someone's IP address is by clicking on the IP button one of their post's, or catching them online and getting their IP via the home page of the admin panel.

Of this, I am certain

who are you even replying to?

Look the way i see it the only way to view ips on the forum is by going into the acp and seeing who is online or you have to wait for someone to post.

What you guys should do is. set up a welcoming board for all new members to post and introduce there self first..Once they introduce there self then give them access to the rest of the forum.

Now since everyone will have to post to have access to the rest of the forum. you are therefore able to view all members ip's.

But that all depends if you or anyone else what to do that.
