    Hi, You can include the IP address field to the mail Notification as shown below:

    Select your notification and add the {ip} tag to the notification.

    1. Open your Form in Edit Mode

    2. Select Email Alerts under the Setup & Embed tag and then select the Notification

    3. Now add a row and create a new field for IP address. {ip}


    If you have further clarification, feel free to ask.

    Well ! I would like to add another way to find ip address from anonymous email id :


    Get the IP address :

    An IP address is like a computer's fingerprint; each one is unique, and you can quickly find that computer's location.

    In Microsoft Outlook, for example, go to View -> Options, and look at the Internet headers.

    The information will tell you the IP address of the machine that sent the email. Many web sites offer free IP address tracing.


    If you want to get external ip address, use  Ip-details.com
