    Reinstate "Open" button on mail item right-click context menu.

    Hello again! I am pleased to note that queries posted here in 2011 about Outlook's failure to display in message lists the email addresses of recipients is, these days, being addressed through some VB code. So, there was some point to it. I have just moved from Outlook 2007 to Outlook 2013 and...

    I am pleased to see that this issue now appears to have been addressed. All of a sudden, a number of threads have become available, including one on Slipstick from (no less!) Diane Poremsky. Here are the ones I've found: http://www.slipstick.com/developer/recipient-email-address-sent-items/...

    Filter which removes Display Names from incoming emails.

    Thanks very much for that, Slipstick. I have been using the Neostorm .cfg for some time, and very useful it is. However, the equivalent .cfg cannot be written for recipients' addresses. So, to deal with that, I am now approaching the idea of a Display Name filter. This would obviously eliminate...

    Filter which removes Display Names from incoming emails.

    Hi! I am looking for a means whereby the sender's Display Name can be stripped from any incoming email, prior to further processing by Outlook. This facility achieves the desired result, but cannot be used with my own Outlook 2007/Gmail.IMAP set-up...

    Postscript! I can only reiterate what a flipping nuisance this obedience to the mastery of the Display Name is. I am in the process of filing into numerous subfolders ~3,500 emails in one folder (the total was originally ~8,000). At this stage, the average size of a filable group is about eight...

    As there is little further to be done, I am marking this thread 'solved', though it is not solved! The solution will be the day when the addresses upon which Outlook depends will be made visible to the naked eye, when the user needs to see them. Thanks very much to Dmitry Streblechenko...

    Thanks! Apparently it is just a matter of changing how PR_DISPLAY_TO/CC/BCC properties are calculated by the store provider. William. PS Wish I could do it myself!

    Thank you, Diane! Most illuminating. The thing about threads such as these is that neither of us is in fact talking to Microsoft. You are a (distinguished) MVP; you run Slipstick - but, you are your own business. And I am just a very humble Joe Soap who, in the autumn (fall, to you) of 2008, had...

    "This is the email's primary ID as first viewed by the end-user, and I am pleased I have Neostorm's 'From email address' column, in which this is plainly seen" (just above) should read please: This is the email's primary ID as it ought first to be viewed by the end-user, and I am...

    Thanks, Diane! Meanwhile, Dmitry Streblechenko has by email double-confirmed his conclusions to me. I am hoping he might post something here (I have sent the URL). My answer to him was thus (extract): "There must be a policy in Microsoft to put emphasis on Display Names, for some...

    Customised To, CC, BCC and Have-replies-sent-to columns in message lists.

    Dmitry Streblechenko of tells me firmly that recipient addresses cannot be extracted prior to a message being opened, which is very distressing news. I quote: "Outlook only shows properties available on the message itself (such as PR_SUBJECT or PR_DISPLAY_TO). These properties are...

    Customised To, CC, BCC and Have-replies-sent-to columns in message lists.

    Most appreciated! I would need them primarily for IMAP, but will try also with my Hotmail/Exchange... in both cases, though, the real benefits will be in off-line folders, where I do virtually all my email work (like, I think, a lot of others). Thanks for input. Very helpful! William.

    Customised To, CC, BCC and Have-replies-sent-to columns in message lists.

    Any joys here??! It should be fairly clear what sort of VB script I am looking for. I have one installed which works (from Neostorm). If any volunteer would like to write the equivalent script for, say, a new 'To' field (in which only the email address is displayed), please let me know and we...

    Many thanks, Slipstick! I have looked often at that page, noting to my annoyance that I could have got the Sender's Address form free there, instead of paying Microsoft Support ~€80 to find it!! Ideally the new To, CC, BCC and Have-replies-sent-to fields would be viewable in any folder...
