Of all the mail I got on this subject, yours was the most informative.
Thanks. But my question is this. Does GMail provide access to the full
headers? For example when I click 'Show Details' I see the following and not

The above header just arrived as I was typing this so I thought it an
excellent example. Obviously, I've masked addresses but the point is the
same, g-mail doesn't give much in the way of detail. Short of flagging one
item as spam has the potential risk of sending all FreeBSD-Questions mail to
the spam folder which is just a swirling vortex of nothingness that gets
deleted. If it's managed to get routed there, it stays there, I rarely go
digging for mail in my spam folder because I rarely find stuff that was sent
to detention without rightfully being there.
