Have you tried contacting Outlook/Hotmail support for instructions on how to retrieve the full headers?

I suppose your company may have enabled security settings that, as a side effect, prevent you from viewing the headers.

Most webmail sites and email apps for phones do not allow the headers to be viewed.

You might want to try from a friend's computer...
