Header Analysis

    Asked on June 18, 2013 at 01:39 PM

    Is there any way to find out "header" info from the person filling out a jotform? When someone emails our office directly, often I can use the header info to determine if the request is a scam, originating from outside the country. Does this make sense?  PS.. we love jotform.. thanks!

    Hello BeckLawPC,

    Can I clarify what you are trying to achieve so that we could assist you better on this inquiry?

    Are you trying to make the Email Subject identifiable from which counntry it has originated?

    Or Are you having submission notifications going straight to your spam folder?

    Can you provide more information, let say a screenshot so that we could understand the inquiry better.

    Thank you so much for using Jotform.

    Yes.. once in a while we suspect the the person(s) filling out the form may be attempting to perpetrate a fraud. Most of those originate from out of the country, asia in particular. They're usually easy to spot just by the construction/language of the request, but unfortunately they're getting better at this. In those few instances it would be helpful to know the country of origin of the person filling out the form. Not a big deal, just curious if possible?

    Here's a quick guide on how to see the IP address of the person who is filling out the form.


    You can see where the person is coming from when you know the IP address they are using.
