Display Full Headers in Emails

Hieu Tran updated May 20, 2011 at 6:09 PM

Typical emails display standard headers with information of the sender, receiver, and subject. However, emails displaying full headers will detail the route of the email. When reporting spam mail, please display the full header and copy and paste it to igppticket@ucsd.edu .
Please follow the following steps to your appropriate mail client to display full headers:

Apple Mail

Mozilla Thunderbird

Microsoft Outlook

Microsoft Entourage

Eudora Mail

Apple Mail:

Go to View > Message > Long Headers.

Mozilla Thunderbird:

Go to View > Headers > All.

Microsoft Outlook for Mac:

Right Click on Email > View Source. A popup window will appear.

Microsoft Entourage:

Go to Message > Source.


Open up the email and click on the Blah, Blah, Blah button.
