Outlook Express - Display Full Message Headers

How do you display the full message header in OE v 6.0? I've looked at the Help file which is useless!

Right click on the message to highlight>Properties>Details tab.

You can also read the actual message if required.

To be fully safe in OE, it's best to permanently disable the Preview Pane and double click on a message in the list to open it.

Any doubts, just use the opening paragraph's advice to check. If dodgy, keep clicking OK to fully close and, whilst still highlighted, use the Delete button.

OE's Help does offer advice but, in this case, via File>Properties with the Preview Pane open.

Not very wise if there is a nasty as just clicking on an e-mail can/could set it free.

That's the reason for permanently disabling the Preview Pane.
