 Email senders email address

I am new to OE, and the senders address just shows a name,
how can I tell OE to show the email senders address?

Thanks

Hi there,

You can't get OE to display the address in the FROM field; that will display
whatever the sender wants it to display.  But if you right-click on the
message header and choose Properties, that will show you the sender's email
address.

Just double click the message in the list to open it in its own window, then
go to the name in the From line and double click it.  The email address will
then be visible.

The thing to realise is that even though you see only a name,
OE actually interprets (for want of another phrase) it
as the correct email address, for that person
Similarly if you place peoples addresses into your contacts list/address
book
and then create a mail message and just start entering that persons name
 (must be in address book) then after completing sufficient letters of their
name
the whole name will come up.
If you send a message with that name showing OE Knows it is to be sent to
that persons email address not as you appear to be thinking, their name.
Its a reasonably intelligent program especially if you have the info in
address book.

The thing to realise is that, if I have 3 friends called John, and they
each just set their e-mail name as "John", I have no way of telling in OE
which John I just received an e-mail from, because OE won't show me the e-
mail address. More to the point, if I get spam that appears to be from
"John", I can't tell that it's not from one of my friends until I open it,
because OE insists on "protecting me" from the technicalities of a raw e-
mail address.

If it's good enough for my business card, it's good enough for OE. Stop
hiding e-mail addresses!
