How do I view mail headers without opening?

How, in Outlook 2010, can I view email headers *without* displaying the
message contents? I am receiving a LOT of phishing email lately so I'd
like to be able to view the headers when the sender is, say, Bank of
America. Not!

In View | Layout, turn the Reading Pane off.

That kills the message display, but I still want to see all the header
information - the path. ?
I found an answer that works. If you add Message Options to the Quick
Access toolbar, you can view Internet headers without opening a message.
Now I can see all the phishing crap sent from someone with an email
address (if not spoofed) in Nauru.

Hi, Jason.
If you add Message Options to the Quick Access toolbar...
HOW do you do that?

I know how to see the Message Headers by right-clicking on the message in
the Message List, but I don't see a way to add that to the QAT. Long ago I
added the Options menu - the one familiar from OE/WLM, but this doesn't get
me closer to the Message Properties and from there to the Details.

So, how DO you do that?
