    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?
