Outlook 2016 Conditional Format for User Defined Field

Outlook version
Outlook 2010 64 bit
Email Account
POP3
Using the macro from vbnet I have a user defined field senderfullname which displays the contact as the sender of the email. If the sender is not one of my contacts the field understandably is blank. The results in an empty space in my inbox. While I could add the from field in the column setting by the view, is there anyway to make a conditional statement saying if senderfullname is empty view from field? Even if I did add the from field in the column settings, it seems that the inbox view is limited to only 2 lines (besides the preview) while I need senderfullname, from and subject. I can't seem to view all three.

Please advise.
Thank you.

You can use the macro to add the From field or any other value if a contact is not found. You can't use a formula to set it on the fly unless you use a another custom field that checks the value of the senderfullname field and if blank, use the From.
