I have a mailbox on yahoo and I would like to view some email original source like gmail's option, "show original mail".

Is there an option like that in yahoo? I couldn't find it.

YPOPs! is an application that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail.

YPOPs! is a free open source software that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail. You can use your favourite email client, be it Outlook, Thunderbird, or whatever else you like and connect to Yahoo! Mail seamlessly.

That's more of an application use question than programming. However if Yahoo! don't provide a facility, you can fetch the mail from Yahoo! using POP3 and read the full mail in any email client that supports showing the original source, or code up a client/script to fetch it.

However POP3 access in Yahoo! is limited to paying customers.
