Extending Email Headers - Microsoft Outlook Express 6.x

Extending email headers will enable you to identify who sent you a particular email message and how you received it. Complete the following steps to extend the header of an email and to file a complaint with NetZero regarding the spam or offending message.

To show extended email headers:

  1. Open the appropriate email message.
  2. From the File menu, select Properties.
  3. Select the Details tab. Additional information including the return path, received-from data and the message ID will be displayed on the tab.

    Tip: A shortcut to extending an email header in Outlook Express is to press Ctrl+F3 simultaneously on your keyboard while you are in the email document.

Note: If you want to report spam or an offensive message, you will need to copy and paste the full header and the actual text of the spam or offensive message into a new email message.

  1. Left-click at the beginning of the header and drag over the entire header.
  2. Right-click and select Copy.
  3. Open a new message.
  4. Click once in the text box of your new message and select Edit and Paste.
  5. Left-click in the spam or harassing email text box and drag over the entire message.
  6. Right-click and select Copy.
  7. Click once in the text box of the new message and select Edit and Paste.
  8. Enter in the To: field.
  9. Click on the Send icon to report your problem.
