How Can You Trace a Gmail Email Account to the Owner

When Gmail first jumped onto the web based e-mail scene a few years ago, its service was available only to those who had been invited to use the service. Now it's free for anyone who wants to use it and have become one of the most popular free web messaging services on the Internet.

Of course, Gmail is also very attractive to Cyber Stalkers and as other web-based web-based messaging services, is popular among those who use an email to send harassed messages that are not invited or boring to others.

If you have been receiving unwanted e-mail from a Gmail address, there are steps that you can take to find out who has been sending you the e-mail and get them to stop.

Your first step should be to use the inverted e-mail search proposed by Gmail itself. Indeed, it is easier for Gmail to search for its own courier records than to bring them to reveal information to an external source. 

If you are a Gmail account holder yourself you might also have more leverage than you would as an "outside" e-mail account holder. Try using Gmail's reverse e-mail lookup system to see what kind of information you can uncover about the identity associated with the e-mail address that has been sending you unwanted e-mail.
