Always show the full email address of a sender in the view pane. This is a major security risk that the email address of a sender is hidden and requires several clicks to view. Default should always be to show the full sender email address.

I deal with lots of customers and they are associated in my database by their email address. By not showing their email address, my productivity is slowed down. And as mentioned and more importantly, this is a security risk that needs to be fixed ASAP.
This is also a problem if a contact has several email addresses in the address book, e.g. business and private. It is way too hard if even possible to figure what address is actually used!
Fix this bug!

My recollection is that you could right click on an email without opening it and see the full trail of where it came from. That facility no longer seems to exist even though it was and would be very useful for identifying scam messages that should not be opened because it could reveal that a messge had originated from a server in a dubious place.

Not showing actual email addresses of senders and recipients has cost me in personal reputation and money in easily prevantable human errors. I know several John Smiths.

This isn't a feature request, it's a report of software aggression and should be treated as a bug.

This is now a huge security risk with Phishing/SpearPhishing as attackers will use a spoofed display name and there is no 'low skilled user' method to verify that that name is the person you think it is. We see many messages getting past filters, going to client users that are very well crafted attacks where the email address showing up in the from automatically, all the time (regardless of internal or not), would help empower users to make better judgements on phishing messages.
Need a way to see the sender's address in the message list view. I'd also like the option to be see the sender email address and the envelope sender address. Sometimes those can be helpful in diagnosing an email... and not have to open the headers to see it.

Outlook 2016 now seems to randomly change the entered email adress in the To and Bcc fields to some account identifier that does not allow me to see the full email address. On Reply or Forward only the account identifier is in the body, which is unusable on an email client that is not on the same Outlook server ... Please stop translating the email address and always show and preserve it. !

Please help my users identify display name spoofing by showing the email address of the sender in the list view!

Should also display it in the list view (to allow bulk deletes without viewing each message, and to avoid possible preview pane vulnerabilities). Display names alone are too easy to forge, and impossible to authenticate.
I agree, especially with Ryan Perry regarding unsubscribing duplicated emails.
I've lost in this way many emails, because addresses were changed.
Ryan Perry commented
Show the recipients, too. This is helpful in knowing which email address to unsubscribe. IE in my case, our company updated email schemas and a number of our partners are now emailing us in duplicate but it is hard to see which email to unsubscribe. The only way I can see to determine this is to look at the actual header, which isn't very user friendly. A mousover tooltip would be sufficient if MSFT wishes to preserve an abbreviated appearance.

This is extremely important from a security point of view.
Add this as an additional column for those that need it.... as it was in older versions. It's a security risk of not being able to see the sending email address.

Microsoft, always show the full e-mail address!
You can add an option to show only the names for people that do not care about security.

This is a very necessary functionality, it is a pity that Microsoft did not think about it
