Not what I am referring to, I think you have misunderstood my content.
Agreed and I know the headers (or should I say mail body code) are
always present with the emails. What I am referring to is that the
header information is hidden by default, but one can reveal this hidden
info to trace where the mail has come from or going to. It's used by
security officers like myself and online Service Providers to trace
emails, spam, malicious content etc.
if you ever launch a complaint to your SP over spam mail received, they
ask you to send a copy of the email with "All" headers revealed. In
Thunderbird this is a relatively easy thing to do, just two clicks, as I
explained to Tom in my email. In MS Outlook a bit more involved "Email
opened in new window - expand Tags toolbar lower right (you will also
see "Follow up" and "Mark as unread" option there) - Options - Internet
What I was simply replying to Tom, was how to reveal the headers to see
if the email was spam. And no if your headers are in their normal
state/setting, hidden by default, they are never revealed in any emails
sent, that is the body text of the sender. Only if you leave the option
to reveal the headers on, will the sent emails show all of the code and
make the email look like garbage.

Eh? All headers are *always* present in *all* emails *everyone* sends.
I think you're talking about the fact that inline replies/forwards
will show all of these headers in the QUOTED text (which is true), and
since most people blindly top-post, quoting the entire message they
are replying to/forwarding without snipping/trimming and generally
never even consider the implications of this, then yes, the quoted
text in *those* people's messages will end up looking like 'garbage'...
