An e-mail address is not associated with any specific IP address. The only IP address that you can obtain from an e-mail address is the SMTP server that initially delivered the e-mail, not the machine from which the e-mail originated. The e-mail headers may contain the IP address of the original machine, however bear in mind that e-mail headers can be easily forged.
