    If I'm sending emails from home to somewhere else and I want it to be anonymous, can the person receiving the email tell who it is by the IP address? I mean if they get the IP from the email can it actually be traced back to a specific person or just an area ??

    And why would you want to send anonymous E-Mails?

    any e-mail can be traced back.

    You can even trace back exactly which computer sent it, via your PCs MAC address. That is sent to every website you visit, every e-mail you send, and to everyone you download from and upload to.

    from what I have read, that can probably be done, but not without some legal course of action first, like a court order or something.
