How to View Headers (Pictorial Version)

Outlook's "Message Options..." menu displays a message's header. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a keyboard shortcut to access this menu.

Add "Message Options" to the "Quick Access Toolbar" (this only has to be done once).

1. Double-Click on the Quick Access Toolbar's "Customize" icon. (It's almost invisible.)

5. Select the "Add >>>" button to add the item to the right-hand "Customize Quick Access Toolbar" pane
6. Select OK
