All incoming and outgoing messages appear with a Header containing Recipients, Subject and Date. This information is added when you send a message, and can be viewed by the Recipient after they receive the message.
In your New Message window, you have the option of designating Recipients (and who can view them), as well as the Message Subject:
- Clicking on 'To:' (marked in red below), or alternatively, clicking the 'Tools' menu and then 'Select Recipients' will allow you to choose your Recipient, or the direct audience of the message.
- 'CC' - Carbon Copy - (marked in blue) is used when sending a copy of the message to someone who is not addressed in the message.
- 'BCC' - Blind Copy - (marked below in green) means no one else can see these addresses. This option is used for privacy.
- After filling in the Recipients, choose a relevant Subject line (marked below in purple), such as 'Our Meeting Tomorrow' so the Recipients can easily identify the content without having to open or read the message.
Please Note: It's a good idea to make your Subject line unique and specific, as some Email Providers or anti-spam programs may incorrectly recognize your message as Spam.
You can easily view the Message Properties of a sent or received Message, including Header, Sender Address, Content included in the message, and more:
From the main IncrediMail window, please first choose the Message from the Message List, click the 'Message' menu (marked below in red), and then 'Properties' (marked in blue).
From an opened Message, simply click the 'File' menu and then 'Properties', or press the 'Alt' + 'Enter' keys on your keyboard.
In the Message Properties dialog that appears, you will see three tabs:
1. The 'General' tab includes important information about your Message:
- Received From
- Folder Location
2. The Content tab contains important information about the IncrediMail Content within the Message.
Clicking 'Show Me!' will open the Content in a New Message.
3. The 'Details' tab contains important information about your Message, in the form of a Header.
Here you can find information such as the actual Sender's Email Address, when it was sent, and more.
Headers are very important tools that can identify Suspicious or Malicious Messages, and who really sent them.
