  • Oultook 2003 date problem

    Hi everyone, Im having a problem with outlook 2003 and the drafts folder. When a user creates a message and saves it in her drafts folder it is coming out with a date like 26/06/2001. Obviously this is wrong. Checked Date/Time on machine and thats fine. Anyone got any ideas.

    Cheers

    May I also add the draft has not been send, it gives you a date when it should say none as it has never been sent.

    Cheers

      Is it always giving 26/06/2001 or is it a different date each time? Have you got the right columns displayed in the Drafts folder? Obviously if you're displaying "Received" instead of "Sent" it will show dates - but why would you have the "Date" column showing at all in the drafts folder? Isn't it irrelevant?

        No it is always showing the same date. The user wants the date field so she knows when she created the draft. I'ts not for my use, im just trying to fix it. It is the sent field and not the received, its should show you none instead of a date as it hasn't been sent anywhere.

          The default view for Drafts includes the Sent field. All my boxes show "None" here so I'm thinking even if you get this weird date resolved, you won't get what you are looking for. Try adding the Modified field to that view. It does the trick for me.

          BTW, you can add the field by parking in Drafts then navigating the menu to
          View/Arrange By/Current View/Customize Current View/Fields/Select available fields from="Date/Time fields"

            I don't know if this will help but you can actually customise the views.

            Try right clicking on the Sent column and select Customize Current View.

            Click on Format Columns then click on Sent.

            Mine looks like this.
