    Show date and time of incoming email in Windows mail

    I am new to Vista and Window Mail. On incoming emails, it does not show the
    date or time received, how can I have it show date and time. Thanks

    Are you saying there is no Sent column?
    Or, there is a Sent column but that field in the message header is blank?
    Which antivirus are you running?

    Right click on any column heading and choose "columns". Check the boxes for
    the columns you want.

    You might be asking this. I activated both the Sent and Received
    columns in Windows Mail v 6.06 which shows me the date and time that I
    downloaded the email from my mail server, not the date and time that the
    Sender originally sent this. So if I check email on March 30 at 11:00PM
    about 100 emails will come in as "received" with the same time, march 30
    at 11:00pm. Thus I cannot tell when the senders really sent me an email
    form their side. Sometimes this can be very important information, in
    customer service.

    The "Received" time is not the time you download the message.
    It is the time that the message arrives on the incoming mail server.
    Your download time could be much later.

    Re: Show date and time of incoming email in Windows mail

    I'm glad that someone else is having the same problem w/ time & date on
    incoming e-mails--I thought I was having a Senior Moment. I've been away for
    four days and wasn't able to check my messages. When I did today, I was
    surprised to see that none of the messages had the date or time recorded.
    That's never happened before. And, I did not send out an automatic Out of
    Office reply. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Toni Doyle

    Missing time stamps are a totally different problem than a time stamp
    that is inaccurate by a few hours.

    Your problem could be caused by a non-compatible antivirus. Which
    antivirus are you running?

    Re: Show date and time of incoming email in Windows mail

    I use AVG Anti-Virus, and have never had a problem with my e-mail -- e.g.,
    the date and time have always been recorded on my messages.

    Thanks,

    Did you use the standard install for AVG? If so, expect problems to
    show up eventually if you keep it that way. If you don't like this,
    uninstall it and then do a custom install where you tell it to leave
    out the parts that scan email.
