Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.
Read the article that everyone's commenting on.
Microsoft couldn't tell me how to access a header in an Outlook message (their instructions didn't make sense :-) but you did - thank you very much :-)
The information is somewhat correct, however when viewing the Internet headers in Outlook, this information is NOT the full Internet headers, needed to report spam. The example you show in Outlook is insufficient to report spam. Apparently it is impossible to get Microsoft to explain how to do this, unless you use a patch-in hack code for the Outlook registry. They obviously have not built that into the Outlook system, like they have for express.
I have two questions.
a) Is it possible to retrieve the full headers on an email that was forwarded? For example, if someone forwards me an email that he/she received, I know that I can get the full header for the person who sent me the email directly, but can I get the header for the person whose email is being forwarded? (hope the question makes sense)
b) Can I get the full header to an email if that email was copied and pasted and sent to me as a new message. In other words, it wasn't sent to me as an attachement, nor was it forwarded. It was copied and pasted. I can see the person email address, date, etc...but is it possible to get the headers from that?

It depends on the mail program that was used to do the forwarding or
copy/pasting. The answer is typically "no", but in those cases where it's yes,
the headers are obvious and displayed as part of the message that you recieve.
If you don't see them, they're not there.

i still do not know what is full header do i need it?
Is there any option to view mail id in the BCC field from a received email?
Answer above for Outlook address information is fine for all e-mails except those I send.
How to I tell who I sent it to? I have "replied" to e-mails and in some cases it is NOT the address I received it from but a very similar name in my contact list. I can't tell where it went. Now what? Seems very dangerous to be unable to confirm where you actually sent something.
In outlook 2003 some of the messages I am receiving show the full header in the message, which makes it very difficult to read. How do I hide them from the email message?
I'm on Outlook 2010. The example you show for Outlook doesn't look like mine. There isn't an "option" when I right-click on an email. Is it possible to see headers using Outlook2010?
I read your article on viewing header information in Outlook 2010 emails. But, how do I view the header information for a SENT email in this program? I need to see who was included in the BCC.
