Hotmail Log Files

Post Posted: Thu Jul 24, 2014 7:03 am

Hi Folks,

I am trying to recover the logfiles from a Hotmail account that I have been given authority to access. The objective is to analyse IP information at logins.

I was told as the account [access] user, there was a way to recover them from within the email account, but struggling to find any at all.

Does this have to be an application to Hotmail/Microsoft by the account holder to recover such information, or am I missing something - glaringly obvious possibly!!! Confused

Thanks in anticipations! Smile

I assume you are referring to Microsoft Outlook Webmail since Hotmail does not exist any more and all attempts to access it through the web result in being redirected to Outlook. I use Outlook for my personal email account and have never seen a reference to IP tracking in the settings. Outlook has all the appearance of being a bare-bones type of application. No bells and whistles. You can recover messages with Internet Evidence Finder however I don't know if it is possible to use other methods to pull up the IP address of the PC.

I have not used this software myself for email header analysis, but my mentor uses and recommends it:

May I ask who is your mentor? Confused

I mean, it would be the first software by Systool ever recommended (AFAIK/AFAICR) by a professional in the field Shocked .

Glendower:
I can call spirits from the vasty deep.

Hotspur:
Why, so can I, or so can any man;
But will they come when you do call for them?

Good Smile .

But who's gonna be Glendower and who Hotspur? Confused

... going on ...

Glendower:
Why, I can teach you, cousin, to command
The devil

Hotspur:
And I can teach thee, coz, to shame the devil—
By telling the truth. Tell truth and shame the devil.

I may add Wink

I've been using Systools for years and found them to be excellent...along with Kernel and many others.
