Missing sender email address on hover and in reading pane
In the current outlook.com I am able to see the email address of the sender immediately. This is useful in the junk folder so I can see if the email could be legitimate.
This was not possible in the beta without looking at the source which is time consuming.
Now, when you see a single sender in the message list, you can hover over the sender name to see the full email address. Also, when in the reading pane, senders that are not in your safe sender’s list or contacts list will have their full email addresses shown as well.
Thanks for using the Outlook.com beta!
I'd like to go back to original Outlook
When seeing the junk folder, with the old version we had the option to just place the pointer of the mouse on the subject line and It was showing the email address from where the message was coming, key element to know the real source.
That feature is gone with this version. Please put it back.
I 100% agree this feature needs to stay! It's such a safety when you don't know where the email came from. You can check without the risk of opening the email.
Couldn't find an edit button. So I deleted and reposted. Left out the word address the first time.
The only problem I see is when you hover the cursor over the email sender's name, their email address doesn't show up anymore. Other than that, I LOVE IT.

Unless you allow revealing junk mail addresses by hovering over them, as in the last version of Outlook, this is a step backwards! I purposely don't open certain emails on my smartphone, as I wait to get to the laptop to see if the senders are legit. Too many phonies and crooks out there!!!

It looks like the menu that pops up when you hover over the sender's name has been removed. The menu showed the email address of the sender, among other things. I used this feature all the time. Not only for the menu items (send email, find email, etc) but if I was unsure of an email, I could see the address of the sender without opening it.

I cannot see the sender's address now. How can I do this?
hovering over sender is no longer working making you click on a potentially vulnerable message and loading content.

So much more difficult to block senders. These may be my final days with Outlook and current msn email address. What should be possible with one click is now baffling. Why is Microsoft aiding and abetting junk email senders? Truly a giant step backward with blinders on. Spammers get smarter and Microsoft looks the other way. So disappointing.
