An email header identifies who sent the message and where it was received. Some markers, such as "From:" — the sender's name and email address, "To:" — the recipient's name and email address, and "Date:" — the time and date the email was sent, show this information. These are all required indicators.

  • Open the email for which you wish to see the headers.
  • Click More next to Reply. Display the original.
  • Take a screenshot of the text on the page.
  • The Message Header tool should now be open.
  • Paste your email header into the "Paste email header here" box.
  • Above the header, click Analyze.

It is possible to use email header analysis to investigate cyber attacks. When a cyber attack occurs, the email headers will be infected with malware or be marked as spam. In order to investigate the attack, you should run a header analysis on the emails that were sent during the time of the attack. This can help you find out who was responsible for it.
