Outlook 2007 - AddIn

My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use office 2007.  I would like to enquire whether there is an AddIN that would display the IP address in a message in Outlook 2007.  Thank u for your advice and suggestions.

I am not certain, but I do not think so.

What you can do is open the email in Outlook, and look at the properties of the email. That gives you the headers, which give you the IP address of the mail being reviewed.

in response to John Hurst, it is so very hard to read as it is so cramped out and it entails copying everything into an ascii editor and searching for it.  So I want to see if there is a simpler solution, I am sure someone somewhere would have found a solution for this.  Thank u for your response.

Yes. For legitimate email, we do not need the IP of the sender - we have the email address. For spam, we cannot trust the sender's address and may have to look up the IP. If I have to do that (rarely) I copy the headers into Notepad.

As I noted, at this point, I do not know of any other way. Sorry.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

This post is for Outlook 2010 but you should be able to apply it to your version

in response to Mark Galvin, your link seems to be the solution.  Is there anything that is already created for 2007 which I can import into my Outlook 2007?  Thank u.
