Outlook 2010 Internet Message Headers

Message Headers are a key way to look at the technical information about email that is sent to you. It helps IT people determine the back ground on the message such as its origin and the route it took to get to your mail server.

Since the 2007 version of outlook, it has become increasingly more hidden. Here is how to find it.

To see the Internet headers for an email message

  1. Open the message in its own window (not the reading pane) in Outlook 2010.

  2. Click File, and then click Properties.

  3. Look for the section Internet headers at the bottom of the Properties dialog box.

Outlook uses some header information, such as the information in the From, To, and Sent fields in an Outlook message. For more information about common Internet headers, see View e-mail message headers.
