how do I read an email without opening it

Before the xfinity change, I could read an email withoug opening it. How do I do that now?

Re: how do I read an email without opening it

I'm curious;  how are you accessing your mail?  Neither the old or new email format have any way of reading an email without opening it.  In fact, I can't think of any email service that lets you read an email without opening it.

Text in an email can be read without opening it by viewing the source. Check the box to the left of the email, click the menu icon, and choose view source.

Good catch rightfooted.  I had forgotten about the headers.

Right footed, thank you. I will try this!
