Problem

The ISG.EE Support asked for Mail Headers instead of the Mail Body. How do is send the received Email with the Headers?

Solution

Mac OS X - Apple Mail

  1. Select the Mail
  2. Press ALT-CMD-U

  3. Select the whole content with CTRL-A and copy (CTRL-C) and paste (CTRL-V) it into a new Email.

Outlook 2013 (and newer)

/!\ Newer Outlook Versions split up the Email Headers and Email Body. Therefore you have to do two different steps to achieve the same result as with the other Mail Clients. Copy the content of the Headers into a Text Editor (e.g. Notepad), then copy the content of the Body afterwards. Finally copy the whole content (header + body) into a new Email for the ISS.EE support.

Headers

  1. Open the particular email in a new window by double-clicking on the message in the message list. /!\ This step is important!

  2. Select the Message Options Icon (the one in the corner of the Tags Ribbon).

  3. A new window pops up. Select the whole Header (CTRL-A) and copy (CTRL-C) and paste (CTRL-V) it into some temporary Textfile (e.g. notepad).

Body

  1. Open message in a new window
  2. Click into the message and Right click. Then select View Source. /!\ If View Source is greyed out it means, the email you received does only contain ASCII Text and therefore what you see is the source.

  3. Select the whole Source Text (CTRL-A) and Copy (CTRL-C) and Paste (CTRL-V) the whole text at the end of the Text File with the Headers.



Outlook Web Access (mail.ethz.ch)

/!\ DO NOT USE OWA since it is not possible to show the raw body content (e.g. HTML or CSS code to color text into purple)! /!\

Headers

You can use the following method in OWA to get the Mail Headers, but it is not possible to read the raw body content!

  1. Login to your mail account and select the mail.
  2. Right click the mail and select View message details
