How can I select "show original" in Gmail?

4 posts in this topic

Since I can't use mouse coordinates(the button always changes the position), how can I make a script for selecting "show original"?

To find mouse coordinates is not a solution. Maybe with _IE functions you can set your script to selecting "show original".

This can be done by navigating to the correct URL.

A message in your inbox would have the URL:

http://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox/<Thread-ID>

When you open the same message in "original mode", the URL is:

http://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&ik=<IK>&view=om&th=<Thread-ID>

If you read the message's HTML source, you'll see a body script line that starts "var GLOBALS=["

For me, the "IK" value is the tenth comma-separated value in the list.

Could you be more clear? I have no idea where to begin.
