3131494 - Sender's Email address is missing in the Overview (Timeline) when email is forwarded from Outlook mailbox


  • When an e-mail is forwarded from the Outlook client, and received in C4C, the timeline does not display the e-mail address of the original sender (From)
  • Users cannot tell what was the e-mail address the original e-mail came from, they can only see the sender's name



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Forward an e-mail from outlook or any other e-mail client
  2. Open the ticket associated with this e-mail that was forwarded
  3. In the timeline, you noticed only the senders name and nothing related to the e-mail address it came from


  • When e-mails are in plain text, content within the 'From' and 'To' e-mail addresses which are enclosed in the angular braces '< >' are removed for security reasons
  • This is a known limitation (due to security reasons) and the expected system behavior.


  • The system is working as designed
  • If you believe this behavior could be changed or improved, we suggest you to post this as a new request in the Influence forum.
