    Which one of the many ip addresses is the senders machine IP address on received mail under thunderbird (by clicking long headers in view)

    Thanks

    Either the first one in the chain of Received headers (the one with the earliest timestamp) or potentially none of them if it was sent from a webmail interface.

    There's no 100% method to find the sender's IP without discussing it with the ISP involved and they likely won't be helping unless you have a court order.
