Now, since there seems to be some disagreement within Ximian, we need a
call whether to proceed to try and lobby or not. 

I **REALLY** see the need for the feature, but I'm one voice on a
"weird" platform (FreeBSD).  

Since there are already a "View All Headers" and a "View Email Source"
options, this just seems like a very low priority wishlist item.
and wading through all the received and others to find the X-Spam* and
other "interesting" headers is a pain. 

For the immediate purpose of seeing spam score headers, filters would be
the way to go. There are actions available to assign a color and/or assign
a score. The message would still end up in the expected mailbox, but it
would be marked in such a way that you would kow what the spam score was.
I have had no luck getting filters to understand arbitrary headers on an
IMAP account and understanding how the filters work is a problem (for
me) as well. 

The filters and vFolders functionality is, err, confusing at best (and
I'm a former Outlook user). 

I really think this argument that Show All Headers, and View Email
Source can replace this requested functionality is Specious. 

However, I feel like I'm beating a dead horse, and will shut up now. 

I will also see if I can find yet another Email/Contact/Task/Calendar
product that meets my needs, and is willing to at least listen.  

I had such high hopes.
