First of all:
it depend on the way You are reading Your mails.
If You are using some client, like Microsoft Outlook:
* open the message in new window
* click on 'view' -> 'options'
* there will be a box called 'Internet Headers'
* so there should be something like this:
Received: from web20420.mail.********** (web20408.mail.********** [66.*6*.*6*.*6]) by ghoti.ig*.net with SMTP (Microsoft Exchange Internet Mail Service Version 5.5.265*.**)
id A4R402; Wed, ** May 2004 20:2*:58 +0*00
Message-ID: <200405***42678.2*66.qmail@web20420.mail.**********>
Received: from [xx.xx.xx.xx.] by web20408.mail.********** via HTTP;
So: instead of those 'xx.xx..' will be the IP which will be senders IP.

Not all email providers show the senders IP, but only show their own. I could tell you which I use, but I won't LOL.

If you're trying to trace a spammer, it's usually pointless trying to do it through the email IP - they use one-shot accounts at Hotmail, Yaho, AOL, etc. and mail-bombing software.
