Originating IP Address from Email Header

New Email
I've been receiving tons of email SPAM that make no sense like here is the body of one... {spam link removed}
I want to do something about this crap. I'm learning to read headers and want to know if X-Originating IP Addresss 98.138.91.167 is where this email originated? I've seen examples of legitimate email headers and they are much less involved then the following header......

Hello,

I realize I'm replying to an old post, but it was recently linked to from a current discussion so I'd like to get it answered.

At the time in 2011, yes, Yahoo appears to have included the IP address of the sender in this header line:

Code:
Received: from gtcrrutxfd (agan_holiversgank@201.215.52.96 with login)

As of 2017, Yahoo no longer includes the sender IP address in their email headers - Originating IP
