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.
Now I have to click "Show Details" on every email to know if the email is addressed to me or if I am just CCed for reference. Please fix!
this makes no sense and can only make reading emails less convenient. Can someone please explain this rationale? makes no sense.
Yes, this is so frustrating....I should not have to manually click "show details" on every email I receive.
Agreed. Please address.
I'm really curious to see the rationale for making such a decision of making it so painful to click on Show Details for each and every email I receive... Having the ability the change that default behaviour is an absolute must!
ridiculous feature. please take it away
add this feature. what a ridiculous thing to require us to click show details on every email.

Agreed. Outlook shouldn't be forcing everyone to do the extra work to reveal who's on which line, esp when it doesn't save space. (Especially when apparently there's the desired option on Windows' Outlook.)

This is one of the most horrible "features" that I have ever seen.
AGREED! This is stupid to hide this helpful info by default. I can't imagine any legitimate use-case where one would want to hide the TO, CC, and BCC identifiers. If you must insist on having them hidden, by all means please put that ability behind a user preference setting!
Chiming in to agree with everyone here - not immediately being able to see if I am To or CC really slows me down. I can't understand who thought it would be a good idea to add an extra step to get to this information. Microsoft please fix this ASAP!

Why is this a default setting on a PC but unavailable on a Mac without hitting the "Show Details"?
I agree! I need to be able to glance at an email, and see immediately who the To, CC, BCC people are. Having it all collapsed and requiring and extra step to see the actual list is counter productive and waste of efficiency!
This is completely idiotic. Who thought this would be a useful change? I didn't realize this had been changed until I replied to a message that I had been bcc'd. This needs to be changed immediately.
Agree with this, it causes me issues daily with my work emails.
An preferences option would be most welcome.

Agree with all the previous comments. Could this be addressed sharpish please? Even with an option to change in Preferences. It's a real disruptor to context and meaning in business communications. Many thanks in advance.
Agreed with all previous comments. This must rank high on the list of worst Microsoft "Improvements" ever. Why force such a "space saver" on us that runs counter to the demands of business communications???
For god's sake, please bring back the ability to quickly scan who an email is addressed to - the option to see To and Cc lines clearly!!!!!!!!
Don't you read your business users' feedback at all?!!

Please show it by default, or make it collapsed only if it's too long (many recipients, like 50)
Recent resolutions does not need this "feature".

Ditto whatever everyone is saying on this thread. Any update, Microsoft?
