An IP address or IP number (internet protocol address or number) is a unique number that computers use in order to identify and communicate with each other on a network that uses the Internet Protocol standard. Any participating network device ( routers, computers, time-servers, printers, internet fax machines, and some telephones ) must have its own unique address.An IP number can also be thought of as a fiscal number, street address or a phone number . Just as each fiscal number , street address or phone number uniquely identifies a person, building or a telephone, an IP number can uniquely identify a network device on a network.
Thank you Eth and RD. So could us measly peasants trace it through their IP address or does that have to be done through law enforcement?

Like if you send a file over MSN this would make a connection between the two IP's and thats how you can find somebodys IP.But on hotmail the IP would probably encrypted so you'd have to know about decoding it.
Thanks RD. I followed the instructions of the video, but it doesn't work for email addresses...only websites, unless I'm doing something wrong.
