Google's tool for analyzing email headers

I periodically have the need to dig through email headers to figure out when the email originated.  Email headers aren't rocket science (essentially a LIFO stack), but they make my eyes wiggle.  Today, I stumbled across Google's tool for deciphering these logs...and it's pretty cool.

https://toolbox.googleapps.com/apps/messageheader/analyzeheader

This tool takes a header like this:
Delivered-To: f00bar@gmail.com
