    I received an abusive message via the jotform on my personal website.  Is it possible to track the message to its source to properly report the abuse?

    Hello campguy,

    You can get the IP address of this form user by going to your submissions page, clicking the gear looking icon on the upper right corner of the submissions view (just below the delete icon), and then mark the IP address checkbox.

    If it's from the US, you can report it to the local FBI office.

    You can know more details via this link: http://www.justice.gov/criminal/cybercrime/reporting.htm.

    Warm regards,
