    Mail Problem!

    My IT supervisor told me that there is a machine in my branch continuously (once every 2-5 minutes) sends an email to an address and he cant see where it comes from. He wants me to find the culprit. I don't know whether it is a virus or somebody's mail program that is stuck.

    What can I do to find out the culprit?

    Are you able to get a copy of the e-mail headers? If you are able to get those, you can find the IP address, and hopefully based on that, figure out which machine is sending it.

    I connected with my IT supervisor, he said he couldn't get the email headers. Is there any other wise to identify the culprit?
