Thanks a million for adding this feature, Benny!  The arrow icon is 

However, I observe another situation in which the Correspondent column 
is wrong.  If the From header encloses the name in double quotes ("Adam 
& Eve" <x at y.com>), the Correspondent column erroneously displays one of 
the To addresses.  Conversely, other messages from the same sender 
correctly display the Correspondent if the From header omits the double 
quotes but the name is the same, including non-alphabetic characters 
such as an ampersand or comma.
