MailHops Addon for Thunderbird and Free Trace Route Tools to Analyze E-Mail Headers To Show the Route Taken to get to You

This Thunderbird Addon, adds a "Map" link, to your E-Mail Headers. The Map link, will do a Trace Rout from the Sender to you and show the results on a Map. There were no Instructions on how to use this Addon, anywhere that I could find. So, it took me a few minutes to figure it out. That was a Pain!:O But, once I figured it out. It is easy and fast to use. You don't have to use "View - Headers All" in Thunderbird to see and use the Map link, unless you want to. But, there is a + or - link in the Top Left Side of the Header. And you will have to click on the + to see the Map link (if the + is showing, that is). Otherwise, if the - is showing. Just look for the Map link in the Header. Also, below are some links to some Online E-Mail Header Trace Rout Tracing Tools. But, you have to copy and paste your Headers into the Tools to Trace them. So, I didn't try them, since I use Thunderbird and MailHops is faster and easier to use...
