Hi Wilfried,

well according to the mail reader i'm using (Pegasus Mail)
the "shortest" information list displayed (in a fancy way) is made of :
- From :
- To :
- Subject :

it also has some features to display attachments or some informations when 
dealing with a message
coming from a ML respecting some standards.

So if you're planning to make some simpel mail reader, i would suggest you to 
display
only the From, the To, the Subject and the Body of the mail.
All the other headers are rather control headers (for several reasons as mail 
path, mail content description).

HTH,

Best regards,
