HTG Explains: What Can You Find in an Email Header? Whenever you receive an email, there is a lot more to it than meets the eye. While you typically only pay attention to the from address, subject line and body of the message, there is lots more information available “under the hood” of each email which can provide you a wealth of additional information. Why Bother Looking at an Email Header? This is a very good question. For the most part, you really wouldn’t ever need to unless: You suspect an email is a phishing attempt or spoofYou want to view routing information on the email’s pathYou are a curious geek Regardless of your reasons, reading email headers is actually quite easy and can be very revealing. Article Note: For our screenshots and data, we will be using Gmail but virtually every other mail client should provide this same information as well. Viewing the Email Header In Gmail, view the email. Then click the arrow in the upper right corner and select Show original. The resulting window will have the email header data in plain text.

Separating Good and Bad What makes things a little more complicated for developers is the simple realization that there is huge amount of bad code out there. While this is sadly the most frequent case (for reasons that have mostly to do with the realities of the software industry), this doesn’t mean that developers cannot find good examples of code to read.
