To help stop the phishing emails it would be a benefit to see the email address rather than a company name or individual's name. I opened one thinking it was Sainsbury's but the email address would have shown me it was not.

@ancientbird thanks for sharing the idea, could you provide more information about this idea, are you talking about in webmail or email clients? Also its very easy for anyone to spoof an email address so it's not always a clear as "it's from an email address i know, so it's not a phishing attempt".

I think mine is webmail...I use Avast browser to go on to www.talktalk.net to get to my emails, I do not use Outlook Express. I now know to look at the email address once I've opened an email but it would be better to not open the email. I understand they can mimic company email addresses but there will be a diiference, probably a '.eu' or country initials.
