This one is difficult to explain... In the Outlook 2010 navigation pane I arrange my email by Date with the newest on the top. However each email preview,along with the subject, shows the "To" address instead of the "From" address.

This means that I have an inbox where all emails have the same address on them, my own, instead of the person who sent me the email.

Right click on one of the fields and click on FIELD CHOOSER. Then simply drag the TO field away and drag in the FROM field.

This worked, thanks!I had to open Outlook in Debug mode (by holding down Ctrl as I double clicked the icon) before I could access this menu. Maybe this wasn't necessary. – ShaneH Nov 16 '11 at 15:25
Great! No, being in Safe Mode for Outlook should not be necessary; I can change the displayed fields just fine in normal mode. – Andrew Bucklin Nov 16 '11 at 16:10
