Always show the Sender's Full email address and Full Name.
Currently, only part of the Sender's email address is shown.
Frank Sw commented
currently you can only see the senders own-provided description, which is freely to be chosen by the sender. This is widely used by spammers to try to impersonate trusted companies such as banks. if one could see the actual senders email address without opening the mail, we could directly discard the mail as spam, without the risk of activating any kind of active component in the mail (or fetching images or so). Ideally this would be achieved through a checkbox in the app settings.

This is a huge security concern in all Outlook clients, and has been for ages, it is nothing other than #¤%¤# that it still is not shown!

at the moment it's not completely obvious where an email has come from. Often phishing scam email has a well crafted body, but the senders email address gives it away.

I recently attended a cybersecurity training and the expert said that a huge mistake that Microsoft made, with Outlook, was to disable the functionality of being able to see who sent an email by hoovering over the email address. Now one has to actually click on the email and expose oneself to hacks and other vulnerabilities.

I want a function that let you change how you see incoming mails. I want to see their email. not their fake spam name they give up. all I see is fake names like ING, PayPal and name it. i can't see before opening mail if it's spam or not. by having their mail instead of their fake name showing this will solve the issue. Mobile Samsung 📱 BTW. I can't belief outlook shows names, fake names like PayPal, all those hackers use it to spam/scam/spyware/virus with it.

I want to see the email adress without opening email. I don't want to open spam. I want to verify sender before opening email.
Robert Eichhorst commented
most of the spam uses names of known companies (like amazon or others) and outlook needs to show the real adress of the sender.

While we forward an email, the email ids are not being forwarded only names are forwarded. Whenever we forward an email the mail ids should also be forwarded.

I want to know an email is genuine. I want to flag scams.
Showing the full address by default is really important and help preventing most scam email with spoofed name.
We can say to user to be vigilant but if we don't create a better tool for them to fight spam than we are not helping.

Expose the smtp address of sender without opening email to be able to more easily identify phishing emails
Roger Koradi commented
It's rather frustrating not knowing who I got mail from/who I'm writing to.
Maybe the respond button had filled in a wrong address?
Maybe I'm getting mail from somebody who pretends to be a known contact but had malicious intent?
all I need to know is see the address ... except I can't.
This is currently not a feature, it's a flaw

Right now I have to click sender names to see if it's in fact a company sending me an email or a scam. Make the email address always show.
