    "Date and time"? I just see the date, I'd like both date and time to be displayed near each message? How can I do it? Thanks

    Is there anyway to get both the time and date on there? Not just one or the other!

    It's a pity that MSFT doesn't provide enough reasonable non-US formats... event the one that I use in my date and time settings.
    For example I need format like "29-Sep-16 16:01" but there is only "....4:01 PM"

    Actually people need compact formats, and all the "Monday, the 16th of December, 3:47 PM" as well as a set of formats showing the date but not showing time seem to be useless... The usual Microsoft ignorance of user requirements

      If you go into Windows settings and change the time zone from English - US to English - UK, then all of the time formats in Outlook change and you'll find the one you want.

    I could recompose the date and time of the email (such as Hotmail, Gmail, Outlook, Icloud, YaHoo, Aol, or the School Email) for whatever you like—to the future or for the past. for example, late to submit ur work? but still want it to appear you sent it before deadline? contact me if you need any help.
