Display ALL From: info in views
« on: December 12, 2018, 03:38:07 PM »
Sign of a prolific and persistent botnet: 2 email addresses on the From: line
Apparently OK per RFC, but it's not common practice.

From: Jeff XXXXXX <xxxxxx@frontiernet.net> <mubxxxxmed@raaziq3.com.pk>

All have contained malicious links or attachments.

We would like to be able to see at a glance that there are 2 email address on the from line in this case for obvious visual clue that it's spam.
With usual email we see Firstname Lastname and hovering over shows the email address.
With these we see only the second email address in the list and when hovering.
We have to expand headers to see that there's monkey business going on.
(see image uploaded herein)

It may be good that you have effectively removed the "spoofed" info.
No we see an email address we do not recognize and will scrutinize closer.

But you have hidden the OBVIOUS signal that there is spoofed info.
Maybe a caution symbol beside the email address to warn us it's uncommon
 and then hovering could show us the entire From: line

What about Preferences: Displaying Messages: Show email address with display name

Does that display the whole from line?
