It bothers me that I cannot see the actual email address of someone I am sending an email to when I bring them up from Contacts. It shows their name, but some people have more than one email address. I haven't found a way to see the address without going clear back into Contacts. If I tap on the name, it will turn the name blue, but nothing seems to show the address. Am I missing something obvious? (Wouldn't be the first time.)

No, there's no hidden feature to make this happen.

No...I don't think you're missing anything. I've noticed the same thing, and it annoys me, too. There are some contacts for which I have multiple e-mail addresses, and I don't like that fact that I can't easily tell which address a message is going to. Seems like an oversight on Apple's part.

I think it's just part of the simplification process that is Mac stuff. lol

What I do is press the letter of their name and all of their emails come up below, then you can choose which one to send to.
I only use the + if they have one email.

Yeah, that works for me too.
Same here. Should really have the option to specify from Contacts though, like the Phone app allows.

I'm sure everyone knows this, but if instead of starting an email in the email app you start in Contacts you can tap any email address and it will take you to a new email for that person, with the correct address in place. (Yet another reason I would like to be able to get to Contacts outside the phone app. They aren't just for making phone calls!)
