When I send an email, the view does not show the recipient's name or email
address automatically. I must open and close each email to have the
recipient's name displayed. Can this occur automatically when I send an
email?
Thank you.

Thank you for the input.
I'm using Outlook 2003. I'm looking at the "Sent Items" page (the one that
lists all of my emails sent).
When I send an email, NOTHING is shown in the "To" column on the "Sent
Items" page. Only when I open/close the email does the name/email address
appear. Shouldn't the name/email address appear automatically?
Thank you!

Resetting the view did nothing. Thanks anyway.

Here's an abbreviated "screen shot" from ver 2003:

Sent Items
To Subject Received
'aimee' re: Path 6/11/07
re: Doug 6/8/07
re: Baby 6/7/07
'Jerry' re: Digs 6/5/07

Please note that the name in the to column appears only AFTER I open the
e-mail.

Maybe this is an Outlook problem?????

I found that when I look at sent mail in the mail folders "Personal
Folders," I can always see the "To:" information.

However, in the mail folders "imap.aol.com," I have the same problem you
describe. So I often switch to the personal folders to look at sent mail.

Yes, it's a pain.
