Hi, I'm new to this forum so please excuse me for my not really knowing if
this is the right way of answering you. I have a software I use called
INCREDIMAIL and it has a field called "Sender's email address" and yes it is
very helpful because you can tell right away that the "from" (may be
familier) but as soon as you see their real address you know it's Junk. I
have been tring to find that same feature in Outlook 2007 and I haven't been
able to. So for real important mail I use INCEDIMAIL until I could find a
solution. You can get it for free but I believe only the paid
subscribtion(19.95) allows that field. So until someone at Outlook can figure
out how to do it, try that. or if you already know how to, please tell me.
Thanks

Right-click on the address and select Outlook Properties; this will show
both display name and email address.

I do not understand. I am not familiar with "field chooser" if you mean
Customize current view, yes. I chose what columns I wanted and sender's email
account was not listed. I do not understand how to look for that field any
other way. If you mean that I should created a new field I do not know how to
have thier email account displayed? do you?

The senders email address is not exposed by default but you can easily show
it - see http://www.slipstick.com/exchange/adding-extended-mapi-fields-to-outlook/

You need to add a custom field to show the senders address - see
http://www.slipstick.com/exchange/adding-extended-mapi-fields-to-outlook/ for instructions.

Thanks, That's exactly what I want. Why do you think there are other
software's other than Microsoft's that provides what we want. If Microsoft
wants to stay on top they should really address this issue. I teach seniors
the internet and I encourage them to purchase this other software just
because it's easier for the older people to quickly see that the person
sending them emails are not always who they think it's from. Which I really
think is very important. The elders are such easy game for these sort of junk
and/or scams. So won't someone come up with a code to fix this lack of a
field. Thanks

I saw where I could add a column but I do not know how to do this, but it
appears to indicate that this is what I want. I am not pc savey to understand
how to code this into the field, I need a screen print of the steps to do it.
Can you provide that? Thanks

Thanks Diane, I just don't know how to apply this information. It looks like

you screen print the steps?

Hi again, I tried to do this but I'm getting stuck on the "enable senderId" I
can't find how to enable that field. When I paste the code I get an error
unknown field(senderid), so I know I have to enable it but don't know how,
please advise. Thanks
