You haven't received anything from Adobe.  The e-mail is a spam and you may know that they spammers use any address in the FROM field to full the spam filters and their targets.  You are a prime example here.The only way to know who actually sent you and from which country is by looking at the e-mail headers.  You haven't posted this here so I can't tell you who actually sent you this e-mail.Just because from contains "Adobe" does not mean it is from Adobe.  Remember this.

Thank you for posting that screenshot but you actually need to post the full headers.  In Gmail you have to click on a button called "Show Original" as shown in this picture:

http://content.screencast.com/users/JT19560819/folders/Jing/media/1ce6df32-aa10-462f-b529-c201e8863232/2013-06-28_0447.png

By clicking on that button/text, another screen will open with lots of raw data and that will tell us everything we need to know about the original sender and where he/she is residing.

OK the email came from:

You need to forward the entire message including the headers (you have posted here) so that they can track down who was responsible by looking at the time in the e-mail.

urdaddi,

I still don't get it.  Must be blind.  Here is what I see from your clues, and still no address or name that I see.  Do I have the wrong lines, or is one supposed to figure out how to decode the given web address 184.105.237.231?

Line 7   Received: from goolop.1net ([184.105.237.231])

Line 11  Received-SPF: pass (google.com: domain of me@adobe.com designates 184.105.237.231 as permitted sender) client-ip=184.105.237.231;

Line 12  Authentication-Results: mx.google.com;

The line says that Google received the message from IP 184.105.237.231.  Now one needs to find exactly who owns that IP.

You can report them to Google to block them and you can also send an abuse e-mail to their ISP.  I normally write to their ISP.

Ignore the me@adobe.com stuff because they have just made it up.  In fact the "me" refers to the the owner of the e-mail account.  The spammer have used the same e-mail address as the person who it was meant to be sent.  Google calls it "me".  If you have a Google account, try sending an e-mail to your self using the Google e-mail address as the FROM field and see what you see.

No you are not as illiterate as I am but anyway the answer to your question is that I look it up on Arin.net and I got this:

<http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-184-104-0-0-1/pft>

1) Go to http://arin.net and then look for the search box on the right side that looks like this:

2013-07-04_2101.png

2) plug in the IP address you want to see and you get this box:

2013-07-04_2104.png

You need to scroll down the page to get other info as well.

Another way is to download a tool that can run from your disk without installing it.  The tool is at this link:

<http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/ipnetinfo.html>

Scroll down the page after reading what it can do and you will see the download page.  Unzip it and run the executable file and plug in the box your IP address and it will tell you who owns it.  DOWNLOAD THE ZIP FILE NOT THE INSTALLER EXE FILE.

NOTE: Some anti-virus programs might alert you that this is a hacking tool or something like that but just ignore it because it is completely safe.  Run it as a limited user on your machine so that you are protected if you are still in doubt.

As has been posted above, the general From line can have anything munged into it. I get spam, that has my e-dress as the initiating party, but that Header info tells another story.

Good luck,
