    Why is the View -> Message -> Raw Source item greyed out in the mail app? I use firebird on Win 2K at work and this option is invaluable for finding if a message is actually spam or not. Is there a way to enable this option in the Mail app? If not, where should I direct my complaint/comment?

    Thanks,
    Draft

    works for me... make sure you've selected an email then select it.

    It works for me as well. I selected a message, then went View --> Show --> Raw Source

    I'm using Jaguar 10.2.8 if that makes a difference.

    Do you have your preview window open? If so, close it then select a message and try it again.

    The reason that I don't have a preview window is so I don't automatically load a fake webpage that includes my email address. This is also the reason for wanting to view the source to see if any of the links include my email address.

    Can anyone get this to work? Where should I forward this complaint?

    Thanks,
