I was very surprised that Thunderbird does not offer an option to show the e-mail-adress of the sender in a column in the table (like the columns "From" and "Correspondents"). This new column would be very useful to quickly identify spam/junk e-mails.

@wsmwkThanks for picking this up.

Can you already tell us which option is going to be implemented. There have been several different suggestions.

There are some settings to ensure that you can manage the display.

They are in Settings > Message List.

Here is also the official announcement from the team:


Let's give them kudos! they deserve that!

But they call it recipient's mail address, we need it for sender's full email address.

That's what we desperately need.

Or do I miss something?

I can't believe it took this long.

@C-Dark  - this is it exactly what it's shown - the sender.

Do you know whether one can sort the respective mail folder, say Inbox, by the senders' e-mail addresses?
My point of reference is the Łukasz Kosson "Full Address column" add-on, which, as a result from the "Super"nova changes, ceased to work post TB v102.15.x.

The Full Address Column add on is working again.

Which can add To and/or From E-mail address columns to all e-mail lists.
