    2. e-mail recieved on web

    In outlook you can right click the email and select options and it will show the header, I'm not sure about web mail clients.

    Webmail clients are all different.

    I know that in gmail, you click "more options", and then "Show Original"

    Yahoo does it too somehow.

    Here's one of my emails:
    Code:

    What client software and what web mail are you using?

    If you're running outlook express for windows and microsoft outlook then go to inbox or wherever message is you want to check. Simply, right click on the email and go to properties it will display the true email address of the sender.

    If you want to know a website that analyzes and reads email headers for you then go to www.spamcop.com and simply,
    PASTE FULL SPAM HEADERS AND BODY OF E-MAIL
    , and click Interrogate.
