Show custom headers when viewing a message

Reported by Steve Mokris | April 23rd, 2020 @ 03:35 PM

I'd like to be able to choose additional message headers to show when I'm viewing a message. For example, I'd like to see the X-Spam-Score and X-Report-Abuse headers for all messages that have them, so I can adjust my spam filter settings when needed.

In Apple Mail, I can configure that in Preferences > Viewing > Show Message Headers > Custom.

I checked https://manual.mailmate-app.com/view#message-view and https://manual.mailmate-app.com/hidden_preferences but didn't see anything relevant.

    Is this something that's being looked at? I'm planning/hoping to move from Mail to MailMate, and this would be useful for me too. I've looked at headersFormatting.plist and some of the other files in the Layouts folder, but my skills are not up to understanding how and where I can extend them to add some more headers to show up in the default message display window. Even instructions on how to achieve this would be very helpful!

    Edit 28-1-21: Since my initial comment here, I discovered the mailing list, and a search of the archives provided all the information I needed. Editing headersFormatting.plist was indeed the answer, and once you get your head around the format, it's very powerful. For anyone who comes here in the future, these two messages from the mailing list archives are a great starting point:
