Hi all,

Is there any option to view email message header details from exchange server. I know there is a option of "view message details" but user is delegated person, and I can't ask him to share the details.

Can we fetch details from exchange server?

We use Exchange Server 2016 cu19

    Is the recipient on your Exchange server?

    You can add your mailbox to the recipient full access list, then you will could open this mailbox and check message header.

    You can also use Search-mailbox command to export target email from this recipient to your mailbox , then you will could check this email from your mailbox directly:

    Search-Mailbox -Identity recipient -SearchQuery "Subject:Test1234" -TargetFolder check -TargetMailbox administrator  

    If the recipient isn't on your Exchange server, you will cannot check the message header with above ways.
