outlook 2010 view full message source (headers + source)


S

Stig

hello,
in outlook 2003 i could add a registry hack to view the full source of
an email message, with the SaveAllMIMENotJustHeaders registry key.

i've tried it in Outlook 2010 but it does not seem to work?

does anybody know how i can see the complete source of an email
message in outlook 2010?

i need this to let my spamassassin learn from the spam messages that
get through.

thank,
stig

forgot to mention we use also Exchange 2007

maybe that's the problem?
but i don't understand why MS does not make this possible when using
Exchange?

how do people with Exchange get the full message source for use in
spam detection software then?

1. Within Outlook 2010, Open an existing email.

2. Click on the File tab.

3. Click Info.

4. Click the Properties button.

5. Review the Internet Headers. (To copy: Right-click in the field and click "Select All", right-click again to select copy)

Accessing the header that way might have solved Stig's problem, but not mine. I need to see headers from old emails that were downloaded by Outlook Express and imported into Outlook 2010. For them, Outlook shows nothing in the header viewing pane. I wonder if Outlook even imported that information, and it's probably too late to do anything about that now (I have weeks of new messages mixed in with the old). Still, if there's an import option to preserve headers, it would be good to know.

And I find no way to display the actual source code of a "two-part" email, which was very easy to view in Outlook Express. (The solution shown above displays only the code from the HTML part; it does not show the alternative plain-text part, not the separators, and not the actual mail-safe characters received -- they are translated for display.)

Also no way to edit the HTML code of an email I'm composing, at least not within Outlook. That was also very easy in Outlook Express, and occasionally necessary (to add a special charcter, or color, or clean up the quoting, etc.)

Further solutions?
