Any good suggestions out there for
tracking down an inappropriate email to
one of our teachers?

Technically, O\other than getting
the full header information - which
can often get you down to the IP of
the machine that sent the message -
you may not get very far - since
most IP numbers are assigned dynamically,
and you would have to get the IP service
provider to provide the additional
information.

If the letter was not merely inappropriate,
but indicated some criminal intent, then
the best thing to do is to call in the
police services. Threatening, harrassing,
etc.  I believe the state police has an
expert to help police agencies with incidents
like this ... certainl the UVM police are
building an expertise. (We're also an ISP
and can generally trace IP's down to a
cluster of rooms; the police have the
authority to inverview the inhabitants of
rooms, etc.)
