Quit whatever mailer you're using to read it, and open it using the unix
mail program. Most mailers, like the one you're using, shorten the
headers on top of the message to the ones that it thinks you're most
interested. mail doesn't do that. The first header on top of the
message should be "received from: <hostname> <date>". That's the
computer that the sender actually sent the message from. Then with a
little playing with finger and traceroute, you can figure out who it was
that sent it and where exactly that computer is at.
