How could someone get my IP address from an email they get from me? I mean....I do not remember seeing an IP address when I send email. How would they retrieve it from such?

Well, It depends.. If you use webmail (Hotmail, MSN) it can be very hard for a person to get your IP. But a person could look at the EMail headers and find your IP, just do a search on AO for Email Headers and youll get a few interesting posts

One can get your ip address if you send them a mail in the following ways
!.If you send the mail throught web services like "humanclick" etc
2.If you replied to a mail that a gif bug in it which is very command these days
3.If you send the mail by a client that also sends your ip address
4.If you use smtp directly to send a mail to his system that can also tell your ip address
Hope i am clear
