I want to recognise quickly that which of my email addresses is received.
I don't want to click "show detail" anymore.

It shows popup detail when mouse is hovering on "sender" name.
I want to check detail on "receiver(to/cc)" names too !


Just hit View > Headers > All.

Thank you. But I don't like LINES of details. :-(
Is it hard to just modify replacing?


The problem is mainly that it's a matter of personal preference; you want to see your own email address, I want to see just "me" and not clutter the UI. Unfortunately, I cannot add a preference for every single aspect of the conversation view, so I have to make a choice here, and it turns out, unfortunately again, that this choice is not the one you wish for.

However, you could easily change the code in your local version to not do the "me" thing. Hey, if you were to submit a pull request with a patch that adds a preference for it, if it's non-invasive enough, I might even accept it! :)
