Add setting to Show Details of email header (TO/CC/BCC) by default
Add an option in Settings to "Show" or "Hide" the email header details (TO/CC/BCC lines) by default, instead of requiring user to click "Show Details" for an email.
In the latest update, when viewing an email, the email header is now collapsed and all contacts listed on one line. This makes it impossible to know at a glance if you were on the TO list or the CC list, which is very frustrating. You have to manually click on Show Details for each email, and it doesn't remember your choice when you look at one again.
Please add an option in Settings to make it expanded/shown by default.

2021 now, new outlook experience and I has still have to click on CC in new messages. Please consider adding this
Yes, please!!! A click saved is a second earned. It adds up over time.

This feature MUST be brought back...
Laszlo Heredy commented
AT LEAST A KEYBOARD SHORTCUT!!!
CC is essential in business mail ... the simplified UI is great but we need a way to pin CC and BCC fields so we don't need to do it every time -- especially requiring a CLICK every time is a tremendous blunder.
Same here - this is a terrible retrograde step, please reinstate the option to have cc and bcc always on in Outlook.

I am very unhappy with this new feature. Please provide a way to go back to having the TO: and CC: names appear on separate lines WITHOUT having to click "show details" on every single email. Just allow users to change the default setting to whichever way they prefer either to show details or hide. Do not assume for us. It is also very disturbing that once I click show details, the names get stacked up vertically rather than filling out a full line. This is not a helpful update. Please provide a default setting or a work-around

MS try to draw users in Mac into Window by doing this, I just realize this when moving from a PC in to a MAC

Please restore the default urgently. this is a most user unfriendly change, and it's hard to understand why it was done.
I agree that it is a most important feature both for security and for business efficacy

Kindly add this feature back. I don't understand why MS is not considering our request.
This ought to be a tiny amount of code to write and test. It is important to see these headers for security reasons -- due to widespread forgery of email values...
Add the ability to CC a certain person in my email response. For example, if i want to leave a POC while I'm out, when the out of office message is sent to the person who sent me an email, add the ability to CC a specific person I've designated as my "backup"
Ditto to all. Unbelievable that MS would change this feature or at least not provide a permanent solution.
Enabling or disabling BCC requires a two-step process. That is going to the options and clicking BCC. This is slow and inconvenient.
Instead a + sign may be added next to CC to enable BCC and a - sign next to BCC to disable. It would be easy and fast. Improve user experience.
Add BCC line as standard in the draft pane instead of looking for it under options. GDPR now requires emails to be sent anonymously to several senders unless you have prior permission.

It would be very efficient to check To / CC / BCC email addresses with just putting a cursor over the name of a person while reading emails (without opening Contact window). I'd also suggest to have a flag in the settings "Always show email addresses in To / CC / BCC fields".
Marc Kaplanes commented
yeah, this "streamlining" is a terrible idea. It hides valuable information - knowing whether somebody is in the TO or CC line.
Rachit Jain commented
What made them even think that this would be a nice feature to have. Atleast this is a basic information required for any email you receive; why to have user click to see such basic details.

Please create the following features in Outlook
1. Ability to view "Cc" column in Mailbox, similar to other columns like "To" or "Subject" etc. This feature is already available in Exchange
2. Ability to cut/copy/paste `outlook items directly through Mail. These features already exist in Exchange.
