Seeing the recipient in sent emails

Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account

My company recently migrated from Lotus Notes to Outlook 2010.

As our IT support is currently busy solving all kinds of problems, I'd like to ask for help.

A central part of my workflow in Lotus Notes was that I filed sent emails in my inbox to keep track of open questions/issues.

I created a rule in Outlook to save a copy of sent mails in my inbox.

Problem is that I don't see the recipients name on the first glance.

It just shows my name as sender.

In Lotus Notes you could see who you sent the mail to without opening the mail itself.

Any suggestions?


This is because the view is using the From field. If you use a single line view you can add the to field to the view.

If you use conversation view and show messages from other folders, you'll see the message and your reply together.
