I read the article "Outlook 2010 - Names in “From” field empty" (http://adminsgoodies.com/outlook-2010-names-in-from-field-empty/) and have a similar but not identical question. I have an empty from field for messages I have sent. This only started to happen yesterday. It only occurs when I reply to or forward a message from a folder, where my outlook settings store replies in the same folder. If I drag the message to the sent folder my name appears in the from field. When I drag it back to the original folder my name is still present. Any idea whats causing this? .. and any ideas on the fix please?!

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

Could you link that article, please? –  MichelZ May 22 '12 at 11:45
