    Is there an easy way to parse out the information in a forwarded e-mail
    from Outlook on a MAPI server ABOUT the original message? e.g. The date,
    time, and e-mail address of the original sender, not the person who
    forwarded it? Also, how does one get the sender's e-mail address out of
    a regular email?

    I'm kind of new to programming in general, so you may have to dumb down
    your response a bit. What do you mean by application, environment, and
    where would I find out what this information is in my example to even be
    able to pull a sample of data to post? Also, what exactly do you mean by
    header?
