Forward spam in line, with headers and stripped formatting

Postby wbear » Mon Apr 28, 2008 9:37 pm

Probably a long shot, but when I receive certain spam, I need to be able to send it along to various abuse departments. In my last email program, I could simply view all headers and hit forward and it would include it all just as I'd been viewing it: full headers visible, plain text message ignoring formatting. This is exactly what abuse departments need to see..not the original formatting, and most don't care to get attachments (I've had messages failed because of it).

So, how does one get full headers, readable, in Barca2 when forwarding off to abuse departments? I've tried simply forwarding, and it dumps the headers, and shows formatting (even though I have plain text set for everything). I've tried selecting the whole message first so it quotes them, but it runs it all together into one long string, totally useless.
Is there some trick to it, or is it simply not possible?
If it's not possible, by the way, it should be corrected. There should be a "forward raw" ability or something added, to make it simpler to report abuse.

Can you forward the email as an attachment?

Control W (I think not at my machine).


Should be an option under the menu

Message | Forward |submenu

I've had issues with abuse departments not wanting to open attachments. I simply need to forward the raw headers, in line, if possible.

1. You could go to Options, Quoting Text, and add following tag:
%headers%
to the field under the Insert Header in Forward tab.
But that would include headers to all forwards that you will do.

2. Or you can make a custom template through menu Tools > Templates, and include the
%headers%
tag into the body of the template.
It would have to be used as a reply template, as there is no "forward with template" available. That would include original sender email address, can't think of a way to remove that otherwise than manually each time.

3. Third way: add one of the abuse departments to your address book, and mark them as VIP, and in Templates tab, set a Forward Template for them. The forward template must be created first, and include the tag as above. It can also include recipients emails, and anything else you wish.

Now each time you have a message to report, run through menu message > forward to favorite. The template shall be used, and include the headers.

That will do just fine, thanks. Added:
%headers%
%body%

It includes the whole thing, adnd the headers too. Perfect.
Thanks!
