As tom indicates, hotmail accounts do have the senders IP not the mail servers, I got caught out on an office wind up on it!! I was the only person living in Bolton with an NTL connection..

Personally I don't think there's a lot you can do, other than specify a rule to delete or send the e-mail to the spam folder. People soon get bored when they get no reply. I think replying will just encourage more unecessary e-mails.
I also highly recommend web forms, especially on school websites. I still see too many where the e-mail address itself is written on a page. It really isn't a good idea.

It should be possible to see the originating computer's IP address in the e-mail header. However, be aware, we've got a similar situation here of bullying e-mails sent using webbased mail, and it's being implied by parents that the originating IP was spoofed to frame another kid... considering this is 8 year old kids, I don't buy it for 1 second. BUT if your suspect is a parent and IT savvy, be prepared for a fight on your hands if you can match IPs

For this sort of thing I used to use bandook (if you have thir IP) not that I'm recommending it to anyone as It caused a lot of problems.
I think it was also referred to as PrinceAli and kinda came from RAT.
Personally in your situation I would just inform the police ( if the messages are threatening) or just send a response with a lot of fake code with the words 'hack' 'trojan' 'downloading' and 'virus' in it.

could you set up a e-mail address yourself (nothing to do with the school @live?) and try and send emails that he / she will reply to? ask there name for free entry for an aston martin! then you'll get it! If not surely you can ban the incoming mail?

We had something similar. I put the email address it had come from into our securus server to flag up any further occurrences. I caught one of our students composing the next email.
