Iam doing r& d on email headers,i want to trace an ip ad of the sender,so i change my firefox proxy server setting to 200.55.48.12 and port 8080 this is the proxy server ip ad, actual my public ip ad is 202.45.25.41.

But when i send an email ad from yahoo to gmail and when i check the email headers ,the ip ad of the sender is similar to my public ip ad even though i had change it to proxy server.

when we set our computer to proxy server and when we visit some website,the webserver see the proxy ip ad and not our real ip ad.

so then when i check the email headers it shows the real ip ad and not the proxy ip ad.

so what would be the reason.

i have been caught in a scandal recently concerning all of this mess and what i learned is that whenever u send an email, it will ALWAYS show your public ip, meaning the ip that the isp has provided you with, and neeeeeever your browsers ip for security purposes. imagine if everyone could send an email using a randomized ip address in their explorer's settings, they would never be caught if they are harassing people by sendind emails!
