I use Outlook 2010. I have 15 email accounts that are active. How can I determine which email account the email was sent to? Earlier versions had a feature enabling a person to right click the mail and it would show such information.

Examine the email headers and look for the To: field - it will show the email address it was sent to.

The internet headers show up for incoming mail but they do not appear to show up for outgoing mail. However, just opening the email will show who sent it, and the receipient(s).  I don't need headers for that. ... Thinkpads_User

@thinkpads_user - If you have a dozen email addresses on your Exchange account - all the To field is going to show is the primary account name - not the relevant email address.
