2. In the Message window, please click the anchor  in the Tags group on the Message tab to open the Properties dialog box. See screenshot:

Note: You can also open the Properties dialog box by clicking File > Info > Properties.

3. In the Properties dialog box, go to the Internet headers section, find out the X-Originating-IP field, and you will get the sender’s IP address as following screenshot shown.

Note: In some spams, you are likely not to find out the X-Originating-IP filed in the Internet headers section directly. In this condition, please go ahead with following steps.

4. Put cursor at the Internal Headers section, press Ctrl + A key to select all header information, and then press Ctrl + C keys to copy all header information.

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.
