That part's missing from Gmail emails, right?  I thought Gmail didn't include the sender's IP in the header.

The trick is to always look for the first "Received From" then there will be an IP in square brakets. That is the IP of the server that HELO'd your email server before it sent it.

They may have changed this -- I remember a long time ago reading that Google did not include the sender's IP address in the headers.  I haven't really checked, as my knowledge of this is extremely basic.
