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

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?
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.

Please consider merging this idea with the following ideas:
Show the sender address, not just the display name, like outlook.com does
Make a sender's full email address more easily visible. Very hard to spot phishing if you can't read the full domain.
abilty to see the email senders complete address to determine fraud or phishing attempts
display sender's e-mail address without the need to click into the e-mail
help against phishing, by displaying the senders email address in large font on all received emails. At the moment, it is not shown at all.
Please always show the sender e-mail adress to help fight fishing.

Display name spoofing
the full email address lets me know if the name is real or spoofed

if for example, a HMRC email ends in .gov.uk its more likely to be genuine than hmrc7885322gCD@yahoo.com, but you can't see the incoming email address.

Where is Microsoft's input on this? This is a SERIOUS security concern. Since they changed it to only display alias names, we have to OPEN AN EMAIL THAT WE KNOW NOTHING ABOUT, just to see who flipping sent it. MICROSOFT, GET OFF YOUR BUTTS AND USE OUR BILLIONS OF POUNDS TO PAY JUST ONE PERSON TO CHANGE IT BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS. You have removed a feature which allowed us to see at a glance that someone isn't who they say they are, and scammers are taking full blown advantage, left right and center. SORT IT OUT!

Sender email address should ALWAYS be shown in Outlook. We always tell our users to look at the email address of the sender, but this is often hidden and requires several clicks to view.
