Windows 7: Windows Live Mail - Can Sent To Be Shown?

Windows Live Mail - Can Sent To Be Shown?

I keep most of my Sent messages and the list is starting to get unmanageable in that it doesn't show who it was sent to in the index. Sure, I can click on one in the index and see but that takes forever to find the one I want.

Is there a way to show the recipient in the index other than changing it to one line. After all, the Inbox shows the subject and sender in the two-line mode. Why can't the Sent folder show the subject and recipient in two-line mode?

I've included a shot of the index area in two-line mode. Ya can't tell who it went to.

Your screenshot suggests Windows Live Mail.Yes ?

If so, what if you change your Layout ?

Highlight Sent Items folder > View > Layout > under Reading Pane (Mail) heading, select At the bottom of the message list > OK

Does that show who the messages were sent to ?

That just changes the reading panel. The index or Message Panel stays as one line or two line. When in two line mode, the To or recipient is not shown. I guess I can live with the one-line mode. It just makes the screen look busy and I have to increase the size of the window to make room for the one-line.

Mine shows Recipients in both one line or two line mode.

Perhpas you should have a look at your Column options ...

First, change the Layout .....
Sent Items > View > Layout > Message list > check " choose view automatically ">OK

Then add the TO to the column.....
Sent Items > View > Column > find the To box, if it is not checked, check it > higlight To > click Move Up button and place it to the position you want > OK

This is purely suggestion as it is none of my business.

Wouldn't it be better if you created sub-folders with Names, so that you could drag/drop the e-mails from Sent Items to their appropriate sub-folders ?

Hmmmmmm. Columns can't be selected. Only "Customize View" which is nothing more than message rules.

Too many to assign a folder for every name. I also have three accounts but this is the most active.

No, that is not the one I meant.

You must be using WLM 2011 version.
Mine is WLM 2009 version. My " buttons " for various options are not arranged the same way as your version.

You'll have to find Column under View.

Yeah, I've got the "ribbon". - Version 2011 (Build 15.4.3508.1109) The column selection window looks about the same. But... I can only select the columns when the Message List is in single-line mode. I just found that out messing with it. When in two-line mode, the column button is disabled. Bummer!

Well, I put it in single-line mode. I can cope with that. I really appreciate the help.

Yours is WLM 2011.

I'd assume that you had to select New View ?

Anyway, going back to One Line and Two Line issue.

Why don't you go to One Line View > then Columns > then select To option > use Move Up button and move it up to where you want it > OK when done > Now, you can set it back to Two Line View and see if the To column is still there.
