    When I open an email, I can see all kinds of technical stuff that looks like: HOW do I get rid of this so I just see the email subject, who it's from, and I can then read the email???

    Try this, open a message. Then select the following from your menus

    View -> Message -> Original Content


    View -> Message -> Default Headers

    Those items change the view of your message. Play with them to get what you want. They change depending on what's turned on or off.

    Nope - first, there isn't an "Original Content" line in there at all, or a "Default Header"...

    Are you using 10.6.7?

    I get these two options. Selecting Long Headers displays emails precisely like you listed in your OP.
