Bug 23126 notes that Organization isn't shown in the current header view, and it
is shown in the 4.x Normal view. Perhaps more importantly, Reply-To isn't shown
in the current header view, and we really need that.

Hi Scott,
I made sure that the UI is hooked up for this menu item. When you select 
different display options, you get a reload and the "mail.header_display" pref 
is set accordingly. The headers that are displayed in the body of mail messages 
(i.e. when forwarded or quoted) are observing this pref also.

There is a routine in nsMimeEmitterUtils.cpp called:

    EmitThisHeaderForPrefSetting(PRInt32 dispType, const char *header)

which could help you in tweaking the envelope UI, but I'm not sure.

Let me know if you need any help with this one.

      Am using M13, Win 98, PC (obviously). Can't get any of the headers beyond 
the default ones (Subject, From, Date, To) to display. Going to the view menu 
and choosing the different View Headers options has no effect whatsoever. 
Choosing view page source doesn't work either. Is there any way to get all the

Sorry, we haven't implemented view all headers yet. Look for it after beta 1.

I've implemented the first part of this feature. If you click on a header name 
in the message pane (like From, To, cc, etc.) you'll get a popup which shows you 
all the headers for the message.

I think this will be more useful than a full view headers implementation. You 
can quickly glance at all the headers without having them take up all the real 

Now, I need to try to implement view all headers mode where we show you all the 
headers as the normal view in the message pane.

Okay I actually finished this with a few minutes to spare b4 the deadline 
tonight. You can go to the View --> Headers menu item and choose All or Normal. 

Several caveats:
1) There is no brief mode. I didn't know what headers should go in a brief mode
2) there is no attachment menu when in view all headers mode.
3) this is no toggle icon to switch between a long and short view of email 
addresses. You only get the long view. 

And of course, in view normal mode you can now click on a header name like 
"From" and you'll get a popup containing all the headers. 

I'll file bugs on some of the caveats tomorrow.

Scott - what happens if the user has the mode set to brief in 4.x and then 
migrates.  How do we interpret that setting in Netscape 6?  Thanks.

Comment 19

brief == normal in that case.
BTW: If the collapsed/expanded state of the normal header view parts would stick
between sessions, we wouldn't need brief headers, would we?
The user could just collapse everything but the subject/from/date part and would
virtually have the 4.x brief mode. (OK, the date is not so nice.)
