Mail headers and details


I

Ibrahim Awwad

Dear Colleagues,

How can I see the e-mail headers and details at Outlook 2007. I try to
Right-click on the mail, choose message OPTIONS but in some mails I can see
the headers and some others I can see it blank.

Is there any help.

If you are trying to view headers from an Exchange user in your
organization, it will be blank.

There is no message header on internal email as they haven't been
transmitted via Internet mail servers; the email never left the Exchange
organization so delivery was instant. If you are looking at the message
header to report abuse, you must report it to your mail admin when the
message header is blank as they have means to localize internal abuse.

Thanks,

I actually sometimes like to track the PC which originates the message so
far. I will check with my Admin colleagues for the Exchange server.

That doesn't make sense due to roaming profiles. Someone that sends an
internal (company) e-mail is using their own account but can be logged
on to a different host. If you need to track the origin of the message,
contact your Exchange admin regarding the abuse. If there is no abuse,
why do you need to know the IP address of the sending host which may be
someone's host other than the sender whose account that e-mail got sent?
