Is there a way to track the sender and the location via the email address only.

The problem is somebody has created a similar sounding email id to send content to my official circle with a view to malign me.

It is obvious as result I am now under silent investigation and hence do not have access to the email


Only the address? Not possible. Even with the full headers of the email it can be difficult to trace, because it's possible to forge most of them.

    The address can work as a starting point for more active measures (eg. social engineering), but the address alone isn't enough. – Mark Nov 19 '14 at 10:02
