how do I check the source of a message

Posted

Sometimes I receive messages perpetrated to originate from a trusted source directing me to click on a link, to log in etc. These fake emails need to be identified by checking the source. I was able to do that in Outlook express by selecting "properties" in turn the source of the message as well as the path it has taken is displayed. This allows a definite identification of fake dangerous Email. How can I accomplish this with Thunderbird?
