Remarks

Each MIME part of the message (including the message itself which is actually a root MIME part) have header section containing of some name-value pairs. Header class represents such a pair. To access the entire collection of MIME part headers, use MimePart.Headers property. To access headers of the message itself, it's easier to use MailMessage.Headers property.

Some examples of header names and values are represented below:

NameValue
FromJohn Doe <jdoe@hisdomain.com> (XXX Company)
ToKaty Smith <k.smith@herdomain.com>
Cctechsupport@ourdomain.com

Examples
This sample loads the message from .EML file and shows all the message headers.
// To use the code below, import MailBee namespaces at the top of your code.
using MailBee;
using MailBee.Mime;

// The actual code (put it into a method of your class)

// Load the message from file.
MailMessage msg = new MailMessage();
msg.LoadMessage(@"C:\Docs\TestMail.eml");

// For every header...
foreach (Header hdr in msg.Headers)
{
    // Show the header.
    Console.WriteLine(string.Format("Name: {0}; Value: {1}", hdr.Name, hdr.Value));
}
