Why can I only see limitted header data using Outlook with Exchange?

I'm trying to diagnose some mail issues and found that I have very limited access to message headers.  I use MS Exchange POP3 Connector which then posts the message to my mailbox.  When I right click the message in Outlook 2007 or 2003 I only get information such as below (note it does not show any communication between the mail servers which is what I need):

That is your problem - the POP3 connector doesn't "post" anything, it leaves it for pickup meaning it has less headers.

Thank you for the clarification . . . Does anyone know of a solution other than not using POP3 connector?

Directly receiving mail not an option?  Open up port 25 and redirect your MX records

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

 
Duncan007Author Commented:
Unfortunately that is not an option.  There is no registry hack or anything to preserve the headers as they get forwarded along through POP3 connector?

Not that I am aware of, but I would need to fire up an SBS setup using the POP3 connector to know for sure - actually, I think I have one, I'll get back to you shortly

Have you found anything relating to making the POP3 connector not erase or overwrite the header info after downloading the emails?
