Default Attempting to trace a email

Greetings: I'm trying to trace the origin of an email that is from a state government facility, wanting to show its path and eventual header. I researched and learned that right-clicking an email still located at the "in" box will produce "Message Option," or "Preference," ect., to further click and receive the header and path. I've tried it with several emails but don't seem to be getting it right because none of these options come up.

Am I doing something wrong?

Thank you.

Hi Larry.

What email software are you using?

We cover instructions for most software on our How To Trace An Email page.

Let us know if you still have trouble obtaining your header info.
