Hi Dan! I have Thunderbird v2 installed on my new Toshiba Satellite L30 laptop, & it's capable to view full headers of email 8), but with the help of speciall add-on called "Display mailing list header" ( current version I have is 0.3.2).
After installing it just sellect the email you want to view, then chose "Headers" -> "All"  from the View menu, & you will get them. 8)

I use to trace the IP address from which the spam came from. But, it got to be so time consuming that i stopped doing that a few years ago.

Hi CharleyO,

And while you were at it at the time, what did you learn? Or did you land at the conslusion that it did not bring much.

I learnt that reporting the IP address and location (latitude/longitude) did very little to solve the problem of spam.    :(

Hi Damian
I'm afraid that in this case I'll be fully agree with Charley :'(.

here's what I do in a similar situation: I try to find the initial IP address of spammer which points me to his ISP, after it I send an abuse email to spammer ISP, with a part of spam mail header ( Client IP including), later the spammer ISP blocks the abused user....
But... IMHO the root of the problem here is that SPAM mails are send not by a human, but a Spam-bots, hacked  victims PC, or call it whatever you like.
So the conclusion of my speech will be that above described method now have allmost 0% efficiency :'(

Hi avatar2005,

But I think people react also differently to spam nowadays than a couple of years ago, and there Bill Gates was right, you learn to live with it. You would not believe it, but there are actually those people that are so lonely that they could not live without spam, it is the only mail they get. "Spam or ham" that is the question, said the Mailwasher.
