 full headers on gmail?
Author: B.Shorney   (16 Aug 07 11:22am)
Is there any way to view the full header on a gmail email? I just got a Delivery Status Notification (Failure) from the postmaster at Apparently someone is using my gmail address to send spam. I've already reported it to gmail but would like to find the originating IP.

I just figured it out. Just had to look a little harder (I'm used to Yahoo mail)

To right of show details and Reply, press down-arrow icon for menu,
then select VIEW ORIGINAL. That will display header.

@ P. Hauser:

Thanks a lot for that!

When I advise people to report spam with full headers (like I do --not only-- here: they often ask how to show full headers, and in many cases I just don't know... now I can point them to that page!

I'm now going to update the site with that information - as well as with http:BL lookup to keep the harvesters away from the site... that's going to take a little white though. First thing will be to install some honey pot links. :)
