Any way to show senders address in columns?

by dbron / September 15, 2012 7:18 AM PDT

Since spammers are now using legit friends names from FB to mail their spam, I would like to "at a glance" check the veracity of a friends email before I open it. I realize I can do this by right clicking and checking properties, but what a hassle. Is there a way to have the senders email address show up in a column in the inbox? I can't seem to find a way. Or is there a way to have an incoming email automatically flagged somehow if the email address doesn't match up to the one in my contacts list?
