Alternatively, you can follow the steps below for the appropriate mail client to view the full headers of an email:

    • Google Apps at York: See Trace an email with its full headers.
    • Microsoft Outlook for Windows: Double-click the message to open it in a new window. Select the File tab, and then, at the bottom, click Properties. The data is next to Internet headers.
    • Mail (Microsoft Store App): The Windows 10 Mail client is lightweight and not fully featured. Viewing email headers in Mail is not possible at this time.
    • Mail (macOS): With the message selected, from the menu, select Message, and then select either All Headers or Long Headers.
    • Old MyMail: Open the message and then click on "Message Source" and a separate window will open with the mail headers.
    • Outlook Web App (OWA): Double-click the message to open it. Click the options icon (three dots near the top right), and then click View Message Details.
    • Outlook for macOS: In your Inbox (or other folder), right-click or click the message, and then select View Source.
    • Thunderbird (Windows, macOS): Click View, select Headers, and then choose All.

Once you have obtained the full mail headers, you can copy and paste that information in an email and send it to askit@yorku.ca.
