outlook domain name

I was just told there is a setting that allows a user to hover over the email and a domain name will show up without opening the email? I ask because if I can see what the domain is I may know it is a virus or spam email. Is there a setting?

I'm not aware of a hover feature that reveals the domain.

Don't worry, simply opening an e-mail message, or viewing it in the Reading Pane, will not put your computer at risk.  Following hyperlinks and opening attachments is the risky behavior.

Configure your security settings at File | Options | Trust Center | Trust Center Settings.  For example, you may want to check the box for "Don't download pictures automatically in HTML messages".  This prevents web sites from being alerted that you opened their mail.

You may also want to set up a higher level of Junk e-mail options.  You can have Outlook automatically disable links to messages from domains that are not on your Safe list.

Let me know if you want more detail.
Hope this helps.
