(originally filed as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=506416)

Opening a sent mail I see only "You" as sender.
This isn't very helpful for people having multiple personalities, err,
identities.
One has to hover over that "You" to see the actual sender, which is more than
user-friendly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.just read your own mail
2.
3.
Actual Results:  
you see only very unhelpful information that you sent the mail. As this is not gmail (where I am afraid this idea was copied from) and we can multiple personas, this information could be quite often quite useless.

Expected Results:  
Just the same as before Name <email> ... I can pretty easily recognize my name :)
Can you use the trunk build? I do not see this on it.
