You cannot copy the sender email using keyboard while you are viewing a message, you can do it by mouse only.
STR

1 in message reader, click on recipient, then "Edit contact..."
2 In "Edit contact" popup, select/highlight email address in Email field
3 press Ctrl+C

Actual Result

- selected email address text is not copied to clipboard

Expected Result

- selected email address text should be copied to clipboard
- by analogy, Ctrl+X -> Cut

Yeah, those trivial, yet basic operations should work anywhere no matter what...
-> Confirming

Partial workaround:
There is an easier way if you only want to copy the full email address of a recipient from message header (without Edit Contact):
- click on recipient, then "Copy email address"

@Martin (reporter), pls don't use German in bmo, because people won't understand your bug report and you'll get responses that are not related to your issue (like comment 2). (Die paar Begriffe kriegst du auch noch auf Englisch hin... ;)

That's a different issue, Bug 167010.
It's obvious that Ctrl+C must always copy selected text no matter where, so for all practical purposes, this has ui-review+

That's not how this project works, and I'm afraid you're not yet on the list of approved ui-reviewers, so I'm clearing the ui-r+.
