    To view headers or the HTML source:

    Open a message. Then click the More Actions pull-down menu at the top of the window, and choose View Headers or View Source.

    Headers

    Headers are where information about an email is stored: who it's from and to, when it was sent, the subject, and much more that is usually hidden from view.

    The information shown will be quite detailed. This includes the information shown in basic headers, plus other, advanced, information useful in tracking where a message came from.

    HTML Source

    HTML source refers to the "code" behind what you see in a Web browser. This code contains all the information that a browser needs to show you a page with colors, pretty layout, and formatting (like bold or italics.)

    When you view the HTML source of an email, you'll see the full headers, plus all the other code that the browser reads.

    This is posted from earthlink support Knowledge base.

    This should also work for mindspring e-mail as it uses the same interface.

    Let us know if you need additional assistance.


    Thanks
    Stephen
