Actually, that's not so.  What he said he had done was open the message - not 
preview - then change the header.  It is quite correct that changing the 
header there changes it only for that message view.  Suppose, for instance, 
you felt that you wanted to check the full headers - you probably didn't want 
to set all mail to full headers.

He was told from the beginning how to set it in the gui so that it would be 
persistent, but chose to edit the file instead.
