Display of .msg file attributes in Explorer

Hi,

In Windows Seven x64, from Outlook 2007, I save a message in the .msg format on my C: drive in the Documents folder.

In explorer, I select the "Details" view and I add a column to see the "From" attribute. Nothing shows in this column.What is missing ?

Thanks.
