    On Outlook OWA (outlook website), I can see all header fields. But in Outlook desktop client 2010, the "X-Originating-IP" field is missing. How do I make Outlook download this header field for emails?

      Hi Aniket,
      In some emails, the X-Originating-IP field does not exist. I have talked about this situation in the note (from step 4 - 5) of the article.
