Sorting by and
Adding Fields in Outlook
is set up to sort by the date/time it is received. But occasionally a
stray click may change the way your email is sorted. Do you want to know
how to get it back to the way it used to be? Here's how!
If you click
on the field title (i.e. From, Subject, Received) at the top of your
email list it will sort by that field. For example, if you want to sort
by who it's from, click on the From field. If you want to sort by
Subject click on that. And if you want to sort by how it's received (the
default) click on the Received field heading. You may have to click
twice because it can sort by ascending date or descending date.
What if one of
those fields is missing? Perhaps a stray click took away the From field
so that you no longer see who your mail is from.
Right click on
the other field headings (Subject and Received in this case).
Go to Field
Chooser and click.
Scroll until you
find the missing Field (in this case From). You may need to click
the drop down menu and choose All Mail Fields.
Click and drag
it up to the Field bar where you want it to be.
When you drop
it, it will return.
I usually want
to see when people have requested a read receipt on their email, so I've
added that field to my inbox by following the directions above and
choosing All Mail Fields from the drop down and then dragging over the
Receipt Requested Field.

dislike the Times New Roman font to which most of the MS Office programs
default? You are not alone. You can change that default font
so that it will automatically open to use the font of your choice
