    Re: SMTP Header

    Was the message forwarded internally within your company? Unless it was forwarded as an attachment (not common) you will have to backup to the first person to receive it, and see the headers there.

      Re: SMTP Header

      SMTP headers are only shown on messages that originated from outside or came in to the server via SMTP. A message sent internally will not have the headers.

      If this is a message from an external source that has been forwarded to you, then that destroys the header information. You need to ask the person who originally received the header information to copy it in to an Outlook message for you and then send that across so that you can see it.

        Re: SMTP Header

        Thank you Sembee & lior
        The massege was forwarded from external site.
        From the information you gave me (correct me if I'm wrong)
        only the first recipient can look at the header ?
        Any kind of forwarding will distroy the header ?
        Is ther any other way to restore the header (I can't get the original).

          Any kind of forwarding will destroy the header because only the content and the From, To and Subject lines are sent.
          If you cannot get the original then you are out of luck. That information cannot be retrieved.

            Even if you forward a message as attachment? Isn't the header information preserved in an attached message?

              If you send it as an attachment then yes, but I challenge you to forward one email as an attachment using only the keyboard, just for fun (no mouse). It ain't easy.........
