if it's in the fridge, it's probably in safety there.

What I would like to be able to get is the header info for the message
such as ISP, and server identification as well as the id of the computer
which sent the message.

One can get the sender by using alt+numrow 1.

Thanks. But could you elaborate? Here's what my system displays when I
press alt-enter on the message you posted, which I obtained by switching
to the JAWS cursor. There are no answers here to the questions asked:

Using Outlook 2007 alt-enter displays the 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.

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.
