You can view internet headers without opening the mail in Outlook 2010, see this page.

Thanks, Bill, that works. (I'm still missing Outlook 2003!)

Thanks, Bill. +Rep.

This is something that should have been included as standard on the right-click menu.

I suggest that you set it up as follows (slightly different to the article you linked to):
  • Click File and then click Options
  • Click Customize Ribbon
  • In the left-hand panel, set the option in the Choose commands from: dropdown box to Commands Not in the Ribbon
  • In the right-hand panel, set the option in the Customize the Ribbon: dropdown box to Main Tabs
  • In the panel directly underneath, click to highlight Home (Mail) and then click New Group
  • The category will automatically expand, and the option New Group (Custom) will be highlighted (you can rename this group if you wish)
  • In the left-hand panel, scroll down and click on Message Options...
  • Click Add >> and then click OK

PooMan UK, your 2007 snip for Junk Mail options is the same as it is for 2010 (just a bit of alteration with regard to the wording):

Your 2007 snip:

A 2010 snip:

In order to block a sender's domain one can send the email to the "Junk" folder by clicking on "Junk" and then "Block Sender" as indicated above. Afterward, to block the domain of the sender, one should click the "Junk" option (right click on any email as was done above - it doesn't matter which email) and then click "Junk E-mail Options" (reference the screen cap above):

Once that has been selected, go to the "Blocked Senders" tab and select the email you just blocked (I'm not really blocking zdnet, just using it as an example), select it and then select "Edit...":

Remove the "@" and everything before it to block the domain:

I'm going to go back now and remove this from my blocked senders list because I love my ZDNet emails.

@Dwarf and Bill, great advice! Thanks!
