Help find the IP of a gmail sender that seems to be encoded


New Email
I am seeking help in finding out who is sending slanderous e-mails to the following e-mail listed as Below is one of the e-mails that was sent. I do know there is no IP address listed from the sender besides an internal IP, which I already know is not traceable. This e-mail seems to be encoded with a filter by ESMPTS. I may be wrong, thus my reason for seeking help. I am seeking help with finding out who this person is, what their IP is and where they live. It would put my family at ease with anyone assistance as we will be greatly appreciative. I am pretty tech savvy, but this is out of my realm of knowledge at the moment, but I am willing to do some legwork to find this sender and learn.
I have removed the recipient’s e-mail and replaced it with “recipient” but it is a g-mail account. I have included the original senders e-mail in case anyone knows who this is, or how to find them. I have also deleted the contents of the e-mail for privacy reasons as I do not wish to share the contents openly.

As you said, Gmail conceals the senders IP making it hard to track down the identity behind a address for someone who is trying to stay anonymous.

If you feel real life threatened or that you could be in danger please call the police.

Try having a friend send a Facebook, LinkedIn, and/or Google+ request and see if the person behind the acocunt connects.

Sometimes services like this reverse email lookup will confirm an identity if you already have narrowed down the list of likely suspects.

I'll reply again if I think of anything else.

I do not feel threatened, it is just slander. Is there a way I can find out what IP this came from is the simple question?

Sorry, but no, Google does not include the senders IP in their mail headers.

Maybe the internet crimes dept of your local police dept would be able to contact Google on your behalf if there is a measurable amount of damages caused by the slander?
