Thank you. Helped me a lot.

Thanks.

This is another one of those things that ought to be more obvious but has probably been like this since Outlook 2000 (except for starting at the ribbon). I suppose Microsoft is afraid to change it now...

I remembered as far as the "Show Columns" dialog box and totally overlooked "Select available columns from..." (and then remembered that I forgot to look at that box LAST time too, perhaps a year ago). And every time I do it, I wish that Microsoft would default that box to ALL fields to keep me from wasting time NOT finding the field that ought to be there somewhere. (Surely Outlook's basic design predates the era of usability testing?)

That is my rant for today. Thanks again.
