I recently upgraded to a new MacBook Pro. Everything went well with the migration from my older MacBook and I seem to only have one minor issue. In MAIL, when I view my received messages, it gives me the entire header string regarding the route, servers, etc. that the message came from. How do I see my messages as previously, when only basic details were displayed, as opposed to the whole history of the messages travels?

Thanks

Thanks

Under the sub-menu View/Message, neither "Long Headers" or "Raw Source" should be selected, as either of those options will show the entire header block. I.e., if you see either "Original Content" or "Default Headers" shown as options in that sub-menu, select them.

(This is with Mail v3.5 (930.3), which I assume is approximately the same version you have since your MBP is new.)

mystic,

thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately, 'long headers' was not selected in the view menu and 'original content' or 'default headers' does not appear to be an option.

Thanks

What version of Mail are you running? Do you see the menu items "Long Headers" and "Raw Source" shown (in that order) at the top of the View/Message sub-menu?

I'm using the same version as you v3.5 (930.3). the menu shows the 'long header' and 'raw source' options, but I have tried selecting and then deselecting the 'long header' option and nothing happens.

Thanks

One other possibility is under "Mail/Preferences". Look in the Viewing pane for a popup button named "Show header detail:". If that is set to "All", it appears to override those menu items. Try setting it to "Default" if it isn't set that way already.
