    But I want to see the file size. Not some idiotic approximation in Kilobytes as idiotic Microsoft provides.

    And how about file dates of attachments?

    It's breaktaking, how mentally clueless Microsoft is on matters involving "computers".

    EASIEST WAY: just hover over the message in the inbox...the size is shown (at least in Outlook 2010).

    Easier way to do it in Compact Mode is to select tab View > Change View > Manage Views > select <Current view settings> and click Modify button > Columns > change "Maximum number of lines in compact mode" to 3. Click OK to save. Done.

    How do you get the row immediately underneath the 'All / Unread' to reappear? It is the row with containing column headers.
