Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2014-02-11

We can get and view an email messageโ€™s header above the message body easily when you are previewing the message or opening it in the Message window. See the following screen shot.

However, you can only get information of from, to, cc and subject in the common message header. Sometimes, more information of message header is required. As a result, you need to open the Internet Header. Here we will show you how to get and view the full / internet header in details in Microsoft Outlook.
