RE: origin of an email

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.

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.
