Show me which DL I am part of on an email.
When I receive an email with multiple DL, Outlook should show me which DL I am part of that is causing me to receive that email. This will cut down on clutter by allowing me remove myself from that DL if I do not want to receive the email.

Many times i struggle to filter out emails as i t's not which which DL i was part of resulted in the email as DLs are nested and when i look at To line ,i could say i'm not part of any of those, but it's possible DL i'm part of is nested to To Line... it takes lot of time to dig through to discover.. Is it possible to show source DL through which i've received the email?

Also, occasionally I get a meeting invite that is sent to lot's of DL's and to lots of individual people (I'm talking over 500 individuals and over 20 DLs that I don't recognize. In these cases I don't even know if I was named directly vs. a member of one of these DL's.

I'm a member of numerous distribution lists, but that keeps growing (with and without my knowledge) and these DLs are then children of other DLs that I don't know about. I receive several emails sent to one or two DLs I don't recognize, but somehow I received the message. Allow me to see how I received that email - where is my email address among the tree of DLs and emails addressed?
And +1 on Saurabh's comment: for DLs that include other DLs it would be great to see inclusion path that leads to me.

Let's say I am part of a Distribution List A. Now A has been put into various other Distribution Lists (DL1). Sometimes those Distribution lists are part of further bigger distribution lists(DL2)... So A can be nested way too deep in this DL hierarchy.
Now if an email is sent to a broad distribution list, it would be good to know that I am getting this email as i am part of A which is nested somewhere inside this broader Distribution list . Show membership as:
