I hope you see the problem here.

Try to see this from the perspective of an inexperienced computer user.

Zitat von Bert de Jong <bert at elicom.nl<mailto:bert at elicom.nl>>:


I'm curious if IMP's default is to not show the email address of the sender.

If you look at the attached screenshot

mirrored here https://i.imgur.com/ubRyIY6.png

you can see why one of our customers thought we were about to close

their email account, and why they would send back their password to

the "Email Administrator".

I did see the email address is shown when I move my mouse on the

text, but my customer was not aware of this feature.

Can I change a setting so that IMP will show the email address of

the sender next to the text?

(Next to "Email Administrator" in my case.)

No, such a setting doesn't exist.
