How to get an Email header?

The email header consists of a network path log and e-mail messages, its contents. Mail programs only display basic information, for example: the sender, recipient, their names, and the subject and content of the message. You can read the e-mail header in any e-mail program. This is very important information, especially when you want to strengthen anti-spam filters by adding better rules based on IP addresses and mail server hosts.

If you want to know more about the sender of the e-mail: the real mail server, the IP address from which the e-mail was sent, then use the e-mail header.

In some situations, the technical team may ask you to provide a message header to resolve problems with email delivery.
