    Received header order

    After looking through some Outlook knowledge base articles, it looks like this one is potentially related: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/907985 It talks about reordering and changing things in conjuction with custom message properties.

    Yeah, that's a result of Exchange, not Outlook.

    Received header order

    No such header in an e-mail I sent from Outlook to my Gmail account with Outlook 2007.

    Haha, that wasn't the point. The point was to detect reports forwarded from Outlook. Not spam messages generated in Outlook.

    Outlook will add headers indicating it as the mailer assuming you trust headers of that nature in mail sent to reporting addresses.

    Thanks for that information. I'll be sure to test that more extensively and should I be involved in the beta program for a future version of Office, report that issue.

    Received header order

    I click the new message button in Outlook 2007 SP1. I put my Spamcop reporting address in the To line. I drag and drop the pertenent message from the message list in Outlook into the message to attach it. I send the message.

    I looked back at the original message, and it had these headers. Spamcop is mixing up the order of the headers. Can you verify that conclusion and point me to where to report such an issue? I definitely tested reporting the message again and definitely submitted the message as an attachment this time. Spamcop's result is: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z2763302592z4...0240cc42bb8780z It definitely is mangling the order of the headers.

    Received header order

    I've been receiving spam where the headers indicate a different receiving system than they should. This is an example: http://www.spamcop.net/sc?id=z2761826631zc...244246e31bde99z Is that even possible since I believe headers are supposed to be added on in order so any forgeries would have to be after my mailhosts? In this example, this header in the middle appears to be legitimate: Received: from rhspam.rose-hulman.edu ( by exchange.rose-hulman.edu ( with Microsoft SMTP Server (TLS) id 8.1.340.0; Sun, 5 Apr 2009 10:33:24 -0400 That is our 'spam firewall' handing off the message to the Exchange server. However, there are a bunch of headers after that. Would that indicate that something in our mail system is compromised?
