I have not seen email headers in awhile. I think Outlook and Sylpheed to not
display them by default but I will enable them.  Thanks for the information
headers and on the Internet Society, I had never heard of ietf.org. I am
reading there now

you should check the mail headers to understand (not mines in this thread as
I'm using Gmane.org usenet server as a relay).

Read every Received header from bottom to top. The path is:
user IP>public MX of your mail service>local MX>relay MX>addressee public MX
mail service>local MX delivering to addressee inbox.

The best way to understand is to check the headers, or, better, read the
RFCs http://www.ietf.org/rfc.html

No one I'm aware of.
