How to read and understand email headers ?

My OS is win 10 Prof 64 bit and I use office 365 and Outlook owa for my msn email account.  How do I get educated that the sender of an email is really the sender and not someone else emulating him or her.   As I get so many emails I would like to be educated on this, is there any site or video where I can discern more knowledge.  Thank u and regards.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is a good tutorial on how to read email headers.

Another good tool I use is the Email Header Analyzer.  Simply copy and paste the the email header into the Email Header Analyzer.  This tool will make email headers human readable by parsing them according to RFC 822.
