How can I trace the source of this email?

Can someone tell me how I received the following email?

Its junk email - I used to have several pop3 boxes, but now I have one and
have all my previous emails forwarded to the one pop3 box. I know it came
from one of my alias or mail forwarding accounts, and not directly to my
pop3 account because I use zoneedit.com for my mail forwarding and they are
mentioned in the email path. I have replaced my real pop3 account with
http://www.velocityreviews.com/forums/(E-Mail Removed)unt in the path... If I can find out the original address it
was sent to, then I figure out who has sold my email address without my
permission...

Cheers
Randell D.

looks to be the first email server to catch the mail... but if you don't
have an email address handled by their servers, it would be up the
list... you're the only one of us so far that knows what email addresses
you have

You can't go by the HELO/EHLO string that the sender ("from" host)
claimed that identifies them. The first 2 Received headers seem to be
used by whatever e-mail forwarding provider that you are using to bounce
your e-mail around inside their service. The 3rd Received header with a
uk2net.com looks to have the first step outside your providers domain,
reinforced by the distinct change in the timezone. Also note that the
"by" host in the 3rd Received header says the sender is at IP address
213.239.57.81 but the "from" host reported by that same server shows an
internal host at 10.0.1.221 (so now you're inside the spam source
domain). I wouldn't trust any Received headers after that (but then
uk2net.com is also listed).

It looks like uk2net.com is running an open proxy or has otherwise been
compromised by spammers. If the open (abused) proxy at uk2net.com is
actually reporting a valid IP address of whomever connected to it, the
the IP address 81.199.84.12 belong to CIDR-COMMUNICATION-01 in Nigeria
(another Nigerian scam?), according to RIPE's WhoIs. However, bitch to
uk2net.com for operating an open relay. Bitching to the spammer won't
help and can only hurt you more.

You might want to use e-mail aliases instead of forwarding accounts. I
think the paid-for Yahoo accounts have e-mail aliases. Otherwise, you
can use Sneakemail.com to create aliases to your e-mail account. When
registering for a web site or software or when having to divulge a valid
e-mail account, you can create a Sneakemail alias on the fly. Just
create a unique alias that only that recipient will ever get. If you
ever get spammed through that alias then you know who screwed you.
E-mails delivered through the alias account will have a comment in the
To header from Sneakemail telling you the alias account through which
the e-mail was delivered. SpamMotel also provides e-mail aliases but I
dislike them inserting a statistics table at the start of my e-mails.
SpamEx, I think, also provides e-mail aliases but costs money.
Sneakemail is free for a basic account (i.e., daily and monthly quota
restrictions on bandwidth and quota restriction on max message size) but
for whom I am dispensing e-mail aliases this is more than sufficient for
me, but you can get their paid account with larger quotas.

The header indicates that someone using a system assigned with IP
81.199.84.12 logged into http://mailme.uk2net.com/ with the user account
of 'complotto'. While logged in, they sent this email.
