@HighlyIrregular is correct. All you see is the raw HTML that corresponds to the BODY of the email, but not the internet headers. The accepted answer by colonelPanic is correct.

comment App created in spreadsheet vs programming a full application - is there a middle ground?
We use WebMatrix and it's powerful and easy for a programmer, but I wouldn't recommend for this project. There's not a bit of drag and drop to it, so you have to be familar with HTML, vb, css, etc.

comment App created in spreadsheet vs programming a full application - is there a middle ground?
I never tried Lightswitch, but did a fair amount of research around it and it looked very promising and powerful. In addition to a 'no coding' solution, you can write vb or c# code in it and have the full power of ASP.Net. What ultimately steered me away from it and to WebMatrix was that Lightswitch relies on Silverlight technology which doesn't currently and probably will never run on iPad.

comment How can a CMOS battery store data?
A typical RTC spec sheet datasheets.maxim-ic.com/en/ds/DS1307.pdf shows that the timing does vary with the voltage, but only by less than 1 part in a million. I don't think that has any practical significance. More critical than the voltage is the temperature.

comment How can a CMOS battery store data?
The clock is equally as accurate on battery or off. It depends on a crystal providing a timing signal. It's not highly accurate and depends on the operating system re-syncing it. In windows, I believe the default is weekly over the web.

comment Troubleshooting a crash with Windows 7
Rather than one by one, do a binary search: move half of them, the problem will either be there or not. If the problem is there, remove half of the half. Even with thousands, you can quicky find a single bad one using a binary search.
