Locating Email IP Address to a member

Post by Nina on July 12th 2011, 9:19 am

Hi there

I am not too clued up when it comes to all the technical happenings! Some of our members have been recieving abusive emails from someone, and we believe that it is from another member on the forum. We have the IP addresses. Is there a way to track those IP addresses to a member on the forum>

just click on the post ip icon and you can search it there.

or go to admin panel>user and groups>ban control>ban ip address>search user name>then click on information

Hi Kirk

We have the email IP address but how do we go about finding the user of that IP?

If you got the IP address from a post then look at the author of the post.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.
Never post your email in public.

what i said above?
i never heard of a email IP address, the IP you have you when you create a email is the one used, thus being the same IP.
Unless they are Husein ip changers or have proxies set up, then not much you can do about that.

Also the member or members will have to have at least one post or it will not show up,
The only other way would be to check on your admin panel home page when they are logged into the forum.. And you would have to be there logged in the same time they are to see it then.
