Need ability to have iCloud mail show senders name not just email address.

This affects all web/app versions of outlook.
In the message list (and when reading an email), instead of only showing the display name (which can be modified by phishing and scammers), please add an option to show the sender's address (either behind like "Microsoft.com (firstname.lastname@example.org)" or only see the sender's email like "email@example.com".
Showing only the display name is a huge security flaw, and is probably responsible for 80-90% of successful phishing attacks.
Additionally, on the mobile web version, there is right now no way to even see that address because it's implemented via mouseover (not available on touch devices).
This is probably one of the most important pieces of information about an email message - who it's from (important: who it's from, not who that person claims to be). And you simply decide to not make that information available at all to the users. This is unacceptable. Please fix it.
Why does an email service not display sender email, and only display a user name that can be totally fictitious? Then it makes users struggle to figure what the actual sender email address is.
At outlook.com & outlook.live.com, show the email address of the sender like can be done on the outlook app by tapping on the sender's name.

I need to be able to see who the email is from WITHOUT OPENING IT! You need to display the SMTP From data somewhere that i can see it.
It is a serious security risk that i have to open an email to even see who sent it. The friendly name that you display is easily spoofed, and when an email is opened, you have likely just verified that your address is active. This is unacceptable security risk to Spoofers and Phishers and needs to be fixed.
