    In fact, your email service provider can help you in this matter if you share the concern with them. Another way it to log a formal complaint with your local cyber crime cell who will do it in any case to catch the culprit.

    Depending on what you are using for email. there are ways to sometimes see the full email header which has a lot of the necessary tracking data you may be looking for. Similar to this

    She uses Gmail. And the email was sent to her from a Gmail account. I looked up the up address and it said it was private. It's so frustrating! She is scared.

    If this is a person they do not want e-mails from then I would block the sender.

    When you block someone, messages they send you will go to your Spam folder.

    1. Open Gmail.
    2. Open the message.
    3. In the top right, click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
    4. Click Block [sender].

    If you blocked someone by mistake, you can unblock them using the same steps.

    Tracing mail is a time consuming process. For immediate effect, yes, you can block his/ her mail ID to prevent to send mail. This can be found in settings in almost all email vendor.
