Always show the Sender's Full email address and Full Name.
Currently, only part of the Sender's email address is shown.

Make "sender" email address visible

Obviously it would be Safer if MSN Outlook showed the SENDER'S FULL EMAIL ADDRESS. This should be a basic internet/web Rule.
it is so obvious to this non Tech. Why do Politicians not protect us better with Regulations?
Currently it shows a part of their name and NONE of their email address!
Risk opening Spam or Worse!
Absolutely ridiculous this isn't a feature already. With the amount of phishing out there Microsoft should be ashamed.

Useful in regards to the spam(phising?) mails that get through the filter

When viewing a mail, expanding it should show the full sender's address (mail and domain) so that users can be aware of any phishing attempts!

Scammers can put whatever nicknames on their profile, and in inbox that nickname may look legit. For example I have got email from "Amazon customer service", but their email address was nothing like Amazon's official address. Currently I haven't found a way to check the address any other way than actually opening the mail and tapping on sender's name. It would be a lot easier to spot scammers if you could see their fishy address immediately.
I got scammed today because the senders full email address was not shown by default. Outlook you have let me down - you are helping the scammers by only showing the alias.

I got an email from my bank that asks me to update my mobile number through its suggested link. I have worked in the Fraud department for 10years and my easiest way of confirming a bogus email is through the senders email address. Apparently, your app only shows the email name/alias so it was difficult for me to confirm my suspicions easily as that email was well crafted and had my bank's legit phone # in the signature field.

To really know who the email is from and be able to respond. Since there are no two people with the same name, no one ever changes there email address, and everyone has only one email address......NOT

Some e-mails seem real. Show the senders e-mail, so it is easier to throw out scam mails.

Almost every mail client has an ability to specify custom sender name for each mail account. I miss this one here.

Phishing emails are getting so much better at cloning the look and feel of legitimate ones that this is an essential requirement.

Microsoft? Can you please:
Always show a sender's email address.
And please show it BEFORE the name, or use multiple lines to show the name and email address. As long as the actual email address is apparent.
This would prevent a lot of spoofing scams.

Emails are often addressed to multiple recipients in multiple companies. Often I need to reply to all recipients in company A but not in company B, C etc. The Outlook app shows the display name only, not the email address, which makes it slow and error-prone to filter out the recipients I don't want a particular message going to. Even better would be a "filter recipients by domain name" option.
Massive security risk. How is this still a thing?

please don't club email thread, it could all be from a different date and time, allow me to sort my emails by time and not subject, also so much spam specially where sender name is legitimate but email address is fraud, it should display both name and email address so we know something is wrong if they don't match and you can also send a warning
Outlook is part of the problem. If they change this then they can't continue to send spam effectively. I use to be able to click and see sender but now it copies to clipboard and vanishes. You have about 3 seconds to read it.

show email addresses of incoming mail, not the fake names they list, so I can plainly see scam emails.
Nearly got phished today by a fake mail from spotify. Stop trying to be apple making over simplified UIs for dumb dumbs and show me the email address, thankyou.

Displaying the sender's email address BEFORE the sender's chosen name would make easier to spot a spam email. the last email I received was from Mr and Mrs Bill Gates using the email address of email@example.com .this is a simple request that would make a great difference to spotting spam emails.
