I can confirm that this information is available in OE. I've also been unable to find it with Outlook, in my case 2003. The file menu doesn't bring up properties in or outside the message, nor does alt-enter, which brings up properties in OE. Just now I tested the applications key. Inside the message it displays a line for properties, but says it is unavailable. Outside the message, properties isn't even brought up with the applications key. I hope there's a solution. _____ From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Kimsan Song Sent: Saturday, March 05, 2011 4:57 PM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: origin of an email Hello: Just for kicks and giggles I would like to do the following. I have posted questions concerning email issues and someone would write back, "I see you are using outlook 2007 so here is what you do bla bla bla bla bla." My question is how does one access that information? I have been told to go into the properties of the message with the email closed so I press alt-enter to go into the properties and I was told to CTRL-tab to the details property sheet. However, when I go into the properties, I only have the general property sheet and no details property sheet. Last night someone was able to see what the name was on my computer, which is called kimsan-pc and I use Charter and I am from Washington state. The person also mentioned to press CTRL F3 to access the properties from within an open message and that doesn't work. I'm thinking the CTRL f3 route only works for outlook express, which I am using outlook 2007. In closing, can someone explain why I am not getting the details property sheet, which provides all of this information? Also, I suppose to find out where the person is located, they did a reverse IP look up, how would I do this? I am not trying to do anything suspicious lol, just wanting to learn how to do this. Thankyou.
