In yesterday’s blog post Hey Outlook 2010, where are my message headers? viewing the message headers were discussed, and the efficiencies gained by having fewer clicks to get to the same message header dialog.
Message headers are quite critical when it comes to understanding and diagnosing the path a message went through, and in a number of legal systems are considered as much evidence as the message body.
Neither dialog can be resized and requires us to copy and paste the contents into a notepad or similar in order to read the many line message header that accompanies a modern mail.
I would have thought that the OWA dialog was going to be better, alas there’s no re-sizing there either.
Since we all know what a big deal this is, and the evidentiary nature of message headers (the judge can ask for them), I think it’s high time that we get a decent dialog displaying message headers, not the same old small dialog that we’ve had for several Outlook versions.
