right now, it takes up a lot of real estate in my screen for the recieved field as it says . .

"Thurs 9/10/2009 7:02 AM" as an example.

is there any way i can change the format on this field to just show:

"9/10/09 7:02"

can you put in a custom format ? –  leora Sep 10 '09 at 13:16

In Outlook 2003,

View > Arrange > Current > Format > Received > and choose required Format from drop down.

That's potentially better than changing system date settings :) –  warren Sep 10 '09 at 11:19

In Outlook 2k3, my date field shows as 'Thu 10/09/2009 18:21'

I'm pretty sure this is tied to the "Regional and Language Options" Control Panel (under XP), where I've customized my date format.
