You might like to check the following link which will retrieve the header wherein the routing should be stored.  It is then a case of analysing the returned data.

Post the code into a normal code module, select an email in the explorer and run the code.

Analyse the header and if it has the info you want then let us know and we can work on extracting it for you.

let me clarify my question. What i exactly need is when i recived forwarded email from Mr.A and i want to trace who was the original sender before email was forwarded and some one clear it in email body. How can i do that. I tried find this info in the email header but there is just last sender.

Okay, your question was clear to me, my answer however is inadequate.  I would have sworn the original senders address would be in the message header, but it seems not as I have just tried a test so I could identify to you how it worked ... or so I planned.

I need to rethink for myself and hope you get a suitable answer soon.
