Can we track down who sent an offensive email message?

In most cases we are able to determine at least the point of origin.  If you receive an inappropriate email, please do not delete the email and contact AskIT (www.uab.edu/askit) within 3 days of receipt.  There are ways for a sophisticated hacker to disguise the original location of email messages; in those cases, we can at least contact the Internet service provider involved and request that they prevent a recurrence or be blocked from sending messages onto campus.
