Sometimes when I get suspicious mail, I like to view the source of it, without activating it in my preview pane. In outlook express I would right click it, and choose properties (and from there select message source). I have no way (AFAIK) to do this. Currently I have to left click on the mail, to activate it, and then select view Message Source (or CTRL+U).

Click on the middle of the bar in the preview pane to close it, then select the email and view source. Also, see the cool mailnews.display.html_sanitizer.allowed_tags preference! (Admin: Should we not mark this bug as resolved so searchers will find it? Or is that bad form?)

So, you want to close and reopen the preview pane each time someone wants to view the source for a spam mail? Doens't sound very userfriendly...

yes, ofcourse it works - and so does restarting mozilla each time it **** up, but thats hardly the best way to resolve a bug? btw, what middle pane am I supposed to click in thunderbird??
