Assuming that you have the e-mail in an e-mail program then it depends
on which e-mail program you're using. Message Properties in Outlook*,
View Source in Netscape/Mozilla etc etc.

If you "Quarantine Whole Messages As Queue Files" as well then you can
see the full headers in the qf file (for sendmail).
