|I am receiving email from 2 different people. One is a friend, the other not. But the first "received from" IP address is identical. |
I have read that this is the individual IP for their computer, but I have also read it's just the same email server.
I am very confused and looking for help.
Here is a portion of each of the headers, the IP at top is the first "received from" (The last one shown in the header). Both seem to be from Montreal Canada.
Does the identical IP mean they are sent from the same computer?
Is this the same computer?
Can that IP be faked? (I read it can't).
Or am I just looking at the wrong IP address to compare where these come from?
