    View All Header Info

    I received some unwanted spam mail today, and as is my habit I bounced the offending message off to abuse@...... requesting the account be terminated per their TOS. The reply that I received was that they required all of the message's header info, and gave directions on how to see the full message source if using Outlook Express. I already knew the procedure for OE from using it at home, but at the office I use Outlook 2K (SR-1). The only option that I have found regarding headers is View | Message Header. This does not yield the entire message header, but just shows the To:, CC:, and Subject lines.

    Is there some way in Outlook to display the entire header?

    View | Options.

    (Don't ask why it's an option . . . <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15> )

    Re: View All Header Info

    Ah, Joy. Should have expected Microsoft to put it in such an un-obvious place, and leave their help files completely devoid of any reference to it traceable through "message", "headers", "view", or "show", or any combination thereof.

    Many thanks. Hopefully this might help slow down this spammer.
