Dear just about every single webmail and desktop mail software:
I know that information in To/CC/BCC headers of an e-mail have little bearing on where the message will end up, but could you _please_ display the _actual_ address that was used for delivery somewhere in the UI, like next to the "To:" field? You know that piece of information, so why hide it?
I hate that almost every time I get an unsolicited e-mail I have to dig into headers to determine which of my e-mail aliases is being spammed.
@temporal I'm sure all of them would tell you "patches welcome"
@sir Yeah well, if you run a webmail server I'd happily pay for it and even send the patch myself. Somehow I can't see Google or Fastmail accepting these.
(Speaking of you and money, I was meaning to start moving code sourcehut, I might as well get to it now.)
@sir Thanks, will check it out. Interesting pricing strategy: not for storage, but limiting outgoing e-mails.
@brad Except when it doesn't. To demonstrate a problem: send a mail to yourself by putting your GMail address in BCC. You'll not see it in more details. You'll have to dig into the headers to see what the actual destination e-mail was. It's the same problem Fastmail has.
I don't see why Delivered-To: shouldn't be shown, especially if it's different than To:.
@brad I'm talking strictly about the receiving side.
I sent an e-mail from my Fastmail address to itself (in To:), and BCC-ed it to GMail address (with +alias). In GMail interface, I see an e-mail addressed to my Fastmail address (as per To:), I do *not* have a BCC field available, and to learn what was the exact delivery address (i.e. which +alias I used), I have to go to the raw view and inspect the headers.
