  • Hi,

     
    Thanks for using Microsoft Office for IT Professionals Forums.
     
     
    To view the email’s Properties in Outlook 2010 in editing or reading mode, you can go to File->Info->Properties
     
     
    Please take your time to try the suggestions and let me know the results at your earliest convenience. If anything is unclear or if there is anything I can do for you, please feel free to let me know.

  • Thanks Max,

    What I actually added to the Group I created was '(Properties)', not 'Properties...' or 'Properties', BUT they are all not the same as the Properties that can be accessed through File - Info - Properties!  Although I am very confused, I am satisfied in that I can see the information I want via the Info tab.

    Again, thank you very much,

    Oscar

  • Found Properties, thanks.  How do I get the Show Group to display in the Message Ribbon?

  • Open an email, right click the Message tab and customize the ribbon.  The Show group, which contains Properties, is checked, but I cannot get it displayed on the ribbon.

  • Hi Nelsen,

    I didn't find the Show Group in Customize the Ribbon, either can I find it by searching the internet...

    Will you upload a screen shot or send it to my email?

    shmff@126.com or icff@live.cn

    Sicerely,

  • The groups that I see when I customize the Message tab are: Delete, Respond, Quick Steps, Move, Open, Chinese Conersion, Editing, Zoom, Ink, Tags, and Zoom.  I also created a New Group for some features I wanted (print preview, next item, etc).  I just put the Properties command in my New Group and it is displayed in my Group, but is shades of gray and does not function.

    I do not know how to do a screen shot.

  • Hi Nelsen,

    I understand.

    There are two Properties command available when customize the rebbon. Displayed as:

    Properties...
    Properties

    And please make sure to add the one without the ellipsis dots behind.

  • I don’t like this solution because it requires you to open the email first.  If it is an infected email you have just launch a virus.

    Good luck.

  • I don't like it either.  The only way to see the From address is to open the email.

    No, you won't as virusses can't be executed just by opening an email.

    Anyway, you can add the "Message Options" function to the QAT so you can directly access the header information from the message list.
