Viewing the Full Headers of an Email

How to View Full Headers on Emails

When reporting any issues with emails, whether it's spam or a delivery delay, it essential that the full headers of emails are sent to Support.

All emails are made up of a header and the body and if you are reporting a spam problem, sending  attachments of both are needed.

Once you have the internet headers and email body, you can email them to us by sending them as an attachment to support@mailroute.net.
