Extract the mail header in Mozilla Thunderbird
To be able to trace an e-mail the e-mail headers must be shown. Here you can follow the guide showing how to get mail header using Mozilla Thunderbird email application.
If you recieve some suspicious e-mail and want to report it to the email group or to the security department the unwanted e-mail must always be attached .
But there may be other situations where you should attach just the e-mail header, when it comes to troubleshooting, for example, for delayed emails.
Do like this:
- Start Thunderbird. Mark the suspicious e-mail and click on More. Click on View Source.
- Select and copy all text in the new window.
- Paste the text in the request you are about to send in.
