    Took me some time to find ...

    In a folder, say 'Inbox', right click on a message title and select "View message source." The complete header will be at the top and can be copied.

    Here is the internet header of a spam from BOA
    I have edited out my email address domain and comment in bold
    The bottom after the "Envelope-To" means nothing to me, but to the IT guys and gals it means something.
