Mail Detective helps you decide if that email you got in your inbox is valid or scam by trying to trace the geographic origin of an email. Simply drag an email message from your mail client onto Mail Detective’s window or app icon and the app shows you the country and — if possible — the city this message was sent from. If your mail client does not support drag and drop of mail messages, you can use the built-in system service or copy and paste raw message source text into the app.
Mail clients known to support drag and drop email messages:
- Apple Mail
- Mail Pilot
- Outlook 2011
Mail clients capable of displaying raw message source text:
- Dragging messages onto the app window now works more reliably.
- Intel, 64-bit processor
- OS X 10.9 or later
