    I knew that.

    My question is why did he get all that stuff that looks like it's a routing and how do I prevent it from happening again?

    My e-mail went out on Cox.net. I have not knowingly made any changes but this devil's device has a mind of its own, sometimes.

    Thanks,

    John

    Looks like he is seeing "Internet Header Information".

    There should be some setting to avoid seeing it.

    Not sure about his setup . . .

    NRA_guy is right, it's header info. You cannot prevent it. The header is on every email sent.

    You can, however, go to your options and decheck show header.
