Microsoft Outlook 2003
Extracting an email header can be useful in tracking email issues, locating spammers, and reporting spam. To find your email header, in Outlook versions 97 to 2003, you can use the following steps. Please note, Microsoft Outlook 97 may require the Internet Mail Enhancement Patch to view any mail headers.
To view your header, do the following:
- Start Outlook
- Open the email message in a separate window by double clicking on the email in your Inbox
- In the new email window, click on the View menu and select Options
- Copy the text in the Internet Headers window. This will not include the email message, just the header.
- Paste the information into an email or document for analysis. If you wish to paste the information into an email, you may need to close the options dialogue first.
