  1. Open the email
  2. Click the “File” tab on the ribbon
  3. Click the “Properties” button

If you are wanting to access the email headers to track a suspicious email then I would suggest adding the email options command to the ribbon. This allows you to open the email options / properties without opening the email.To do this

  1. Right click a blank portion of the ribbon and select “customize the Ribbon”
  2. In the “Main Tabs” box select the tab that you want to add the command to. I added mine to the “View” tab but you can add it to any of them.
  3. Underneath the “Main Tabs” box click on “New Group”. This adds a new custom group to your chosen tab.
  4. On the “Choose commands from” box, click the down arrow and select “All commands”
  5. Scroll down the list and select “Message Options”
  6. Click “Add” then “OK”

This adds the “Message Options” command to the new custom group.Now when you want to view email headers you just select the email and click on the “Message Options” icon

Not sure what information you're looking for as far as message options, but across the top of a new message, you should see "Message", "Insert", "Options" - click "Options".

The far right hand group is "More Options", and in the bottom right hand corner of that group, you'll see a little down-right arrow... clicking that arrow will display the standard "Properties" window that you might be looking for (voting, message expiration, etc).

If there's some feature in particular that you're looking for, we can help you find it - they moved a bunch of stuff around in Office 2010!

thanx @Simon H & RShores I was looking for the internet headers which I have now found under properties. I hoped the information would have explained how this happened but no luck. what happened was someone I know forwarded me a message which came from my email address but i never sent it, I have a good password on the account and cant see how anyone could have used it. I checked my sent box and the email isnt there and everything seems normal.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.
