Windows 7: Outlook 2010 Email properties

Outlook 2010 Email properties

With previous versions of MS Outlook you could right-click on a received e-mail and select 'properties' from the drop-down. This would show the full return paths and the true address of the sender.
How would one go about getting to this information?
I did a google but the link was broke

Cheers

This option has been removed from the context (right click) menu in Outlook 2010 but there are alternative ways to access the dialog still and see the Internet headers of that message.
By opening the message first

If you open the message in its own window (via a double click), then you can access the Message Options of that message via;
File-> Info-> button Properties
By leaving the message closed

If you do not want to open the message first, but want to access the Message Options dialog directly from within the main Outlook window, then you can add the Message Options command to your Quick Access Toolbar;
  1. File-> Options
  2. Select the Quick Access Toolbar on the left.
  3. Set the “Choose commands from” dropdown list to; Commands Not in the Ribbon
  4. From the command list select; Message Options…
  5. Press the “Add > >” button.
  6. Press OK.
The option is now added to the Quick Access Toolbar at the top of your Outlook window and view the Internet headers of a message without needing to open it first.
