as I told: read RFC1597 (and related stuff)!
Private addresses aren't routed at all (in the public internet).
And if you don't want to show your IP addresses, you must not use any IP services!
Every mail shows your IP address in the header.

If you don't have the slightest notion about the internet protocol, please shut up.
(As I can see you cannot even distinguish between IP and IP addresses!)
