When you have set the mail to display miminal header it should be possible to hover over the name to get a email as tooltip instead of expanding the header just to view it. Patch coming up.
Created attachment 75339 [details] [diff] [review] patch to enable tooltip this patch touch 2 files, mailWidgets.xml and msgHdrOverlay.js . I used the patch maker to make the patch, however it doesn't look right, a lot of redundant + and - (ie. mirror). Not sure if it's the patch maker's problem or my intellect.
Created attachment 75340 [details] [diff] [review] updated patch Er, ok, guess I don't even need to modify mailWidgets.xml . Just a one line (exclusing the brackets) patch
Created attachment 75344 [details] [diff] [review] one last try Fix the bug if email address is displayed when name isn't available. And found out my old editor is stuffed, using notepad instead.

Marking bug as a dup of 90368. This idea was already suggested. Making the full email address appear in the status bar on hover instead of a tooltip was thought to be a better solution since it parallels showing a url in the status bar when hovering over a web link. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 90368 ***
