    I really loved this solution. However, my outlook keeps on crashing with the addition of this new column. I spent hours on with Microsoft tech support and they said to delete this column and that it seems to be an issue with Outlook. Really would love another solution to put senders address into the message preview. Disappointed that Microsoft support couldn't offer me any solutions to the crashing except for running Outlook in "cleanviews" :(

    Anyone can provide a formula edit which show sender's domain or e-mail address, BUT from headers of e-mail - from Received: field. That would be useful for determine if the e-mail is spoofed or it's real!

    Is there anyway this can be deployed using group policy or via registry changes ?

    Brilliant! SOOO easy. These days it is so easy to 'mask' your email from others and send junk... This stops you opening and saves heaps of time and worry. Why Microsoft doesn't have this column is beyond me. Thanks for this, it is very helpful.
