    • Subject: Subject of the Email
    • Date: The Local Time of the server when the message was sent.
    • Bcc: Blind Carbon Copy
    • Cc: Carbon copy
    • Content-Type: Information about how the message has to be displayed, usually a MIME type
    • n-Reply-To: Message-ID of the message that this is a reply to.
    • Received: Tracking information generated by mail servers that have previously handled a message
    • References: Message-ID of the message that this is a reply to, and the message-id of this message
