As a former user of Outlook Express, I was able to check in
File/Properties/General/Details to Message Source, to check on the address of
the sender of an email. This was sometimes important to know.

With the Outlook supplied with Microsoft Office Professional 2007, the above
functions seem not to be available - have I missed some obvious route?

You can right-click on the sender's name and scroll to properties to find
out the email address.

You can view sender information by double-clicking the text in the From field
in the open message or reading pane. Also, from the main Outlook window, try
right-clicking the message and choosing Message Options.

Note that Outlook and Outlook Express are two completely different
applications. You will encounter many other such differences.

If you want to see the headers, right-click on the e-mail item and choose
Options.
