Tutorial How to find email headers

Find email headers in many common mail clients

  1. cPanelResources

    The headers of a message are detailed information on the routing of a message. Because they contain information than most would need or want they're usually available but hidden.

    Because seeing the headers of a message are such an immense help to troubleshoot email related issues we thought we might share how to find them for some of the more popular mail clients.

    How to find email headers by client:

    From the Email -> go to top right corner click "more" dropdown -> Select View Source
