Yes it is technically possible to get someone’s name and address from their IP address, But it’s probably much difficult task and it’s about to involve law enforcement.
There is basically NO WAY for us common user to “track down” and pinpoint or locate a person to their house via the internet just by using the IP adress and hunting ourselves. The closest you may get is obtaining their IP address, and going to a site like “Geobytes.com” and clicking “IP Locator” and it will give you what city they may be from, it doesn’t get any closer than that.
Publicly available information
The best you can do without help is to identify their ISP – Internet Service Provider. To actually identify the person you’ll need that ISP’s help, and that will likely take a court order. It depends on what ISP (Internet Service Provider) you are using. Some use a static IP which means your IP address is always the same and some use an dynamic IP meaning the IP changes every time you sign on to the internet. But as netstat will give you many results you need to distinguish it, so I suggest that you take the snapshot of the listings and do the analysis later or user various softwares like ethereal etc.
In order to register for an email address, the email provider usually asks for a name and other personal information. If an email is sent out through the webmailer, this name is typically added to all emails sent out. If you use an email program, the name you set up the account with in that program is included in the sent emails. This is a feature, as most people want it that way. If you prefer to remain anonymous, you would have to include a pseudonym.
