N.B. If you need to send me suspicious mail for examination, please be sure to forward it complete with its Internet headers. If you are not sure how to do this, check the help file of your mail software, see the note below or visit for instructions on revealing headers in e-mail. Please do not forward the forged documents that accompany these scams unless by request. Note: It is not always possible to respond to reports of fraud mail, but appropriate action is always taken.  

MAIL HEADERS. You will not normally see full headers when you read your mail but these can be important in investigating Internet fraud.

Microsoft Outlook Express for Windows: Right click on the message and select Properties. Choose the Details tab and select the Message Source Button. Copy the headers and send them along with the body of the email.

Microsoft Outlook: Click the View menu and select Options. You should see a pop up window "Message options" or similar. Notice the box called Internet headers near the bottom of the window. This box contains the full headers. To extract the contents, put your mouse pointer in the box and right-click then choose Select All. All the text in the box will then be highlighted.

Right-click in the box again and this time choose Copy to copy the selected contents to the clipboard. You can then paste the full headers to an email you may be forwarding. .

Pegasus: Users of the excellent Pegasus for Windows will probably not need me to remind them of the Raw View tab and the option to include headers in the Reply and Forward dialogues.

Yahoo web mail:
First you must turn on "Full Headers". From your Yahoo! mail account, click on "Mail Preference". Scroll down the page to "Message Headers" and click on the "all" radio button. Save your preferences at the bottom of the page.
