You can have details of Message header---these log the progress of a message across different servers

For Hotmail:

Log in to your Hotmail account.
Click Options next to the tabs.
Select Mail from the left-side menu.
Click Mail Display Settings.
Under Message Headers, select Advanced.
Click OK.
The full headers for all of your messages will now be available.

For Outlook:
Open Outlook.
Open the message you'd like to view headers for.
Click the View menu, and select Options,The full headers will appear in a new window.

The full headers for all of your messages will now be available

For Windows Hotmail Live:
Log in to your Hotmail account.
You should be using full version of Hotmail live rather than Classic
Click on Mail/ then Inbox/ right click on the mesage and then View Source

For Yahoo Classic (version)
Log in to your yahoo account
Mail/ Options (on right hand side of the screen)/ General Preferences/ Message/ select Show all headers on incoming messages  then 'Save'
When u open email next time in Yahoo it will show all headers
