Netscape Mail

To retrieve the extended headers from an e-mail message received in Netscape Mail (version 3.x), from the Options Menu check Show Headers -> All. (You must have the Netscape Mail window open to have this option). You should see the full headers immdiately in Netscape's mail window. Keep in mind, if you are like most casual e-mail readers you probably don't want to see all this techspeak muble jumble every time your best friend writes you to see how you're doing. To return to the simple headers you are probably used to, you need only go back and check Show Headers -> Normal from the same Options menu. Other versions of Netscape Mail have similar options. For example, in Netscape 2.x, you need only select Show All Headers.
