How do you view the sender's email address in gmail without opening the message?

How do you view the sender's email address in gmail?  This is a basic function that should be available to all users.  Yahoo and earthlink both provide this basic function by allowing you to hover over the sender's name.  Anyone can assign any name to an account, the email address identifies where the email is coming from and is important to help distinguish between potentially harmful emails without opening the message.

When using the Gmail web interface, if I hover over a sender name in the Inbox the pop-up shows their actual information.  Since the one I looked at isn't in my contacts, it's showing actual, not something else.
