In Microsoft Outlook, the 'From' column in the list of emails in my Inbox is hidden, not sure how I managed to do it.

How can I get this column back?

what version of outlook? – studiohack Jan 18 '11 at 2:34

Should work in one version of Outlook or another. Screenshot tour from Outlook 2007.

Right-click on one of the field columns at the top, such as Subject:

alt text

A menu appears. Select Customize Current View.

alt text

A dialog box appears. Select Fields. alt text

Another dialog box appears. As you can see below, you can configure what fields to show, and in what order. Have fun!

On Outlook 2010, the easiest way is to select the From view, in the Arrangement section of the View ribbon tab.
