Outlook 2010 Navigation Pane Date Stamp

Q: Outlook 2010 Navigation Pane Date Stamp

10 - 20% of incoming emails get a WRONG Received date stamp in the navigation pane. On 15 Dec 2012 some emails got '25/01/2000', on 16 Dec 2012 some were stamped 26/01/2000 and a few hours later in the day '27/01/2000'. The emails originate from different senders including one from management software in this computer. That software sent me 5 emails at much the same time, four of which were stamped correctly but one '27/01/2000'.

Most emails are date/time stamped correctly but those stamped wrongly end up right at the bottom of the chronological list in the Navigation pane because of the old date. They are easily unnoticed.

The 'sent' date/time stamp in the email header always seems correct.

G'day Oh Knowledgable Ones..

Please excuse any descriptive anomalies in this enquiry, because I'm overall a PC dummy of 73yrs of age, and definitely not a geek! ...
I have recently been obliged to buy a new PC tower which comes, as it would now, with Win7 and Office 2010.
My enquiry is to do with the Navigation Pane in Outlook. I trust that's the right description for the list of email files running down the LHS of the Pane?
There are three main files there, which can be opened up into files, and sub-files, when created, within them ... (much like OE used to be in my old WinXP equipped PC ... whose Hard Drive bit the dust!)
These three main files are Outlook Data File, my wife's Email Address followed by my Email Address.
Both the Outlook Data File, and my wife's Email Address folder, when opened, list the following sub-files in descending order automatically - Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Junk, Outbox, and Search files. The Outlook Data File also has an RSS Feeds file ... whatever that's used for? ... sitting between the Outbox and Search Folders File.

However ... My Email Address folder, when opened, only shows Inbox ... into which everything goes, both inwards and outwards, with the exception of Drafts, which appear in the Outlook Data File's Drafts file, where, as luck would have it, they can be opened and sent from there later. Any deleted files go into a subfolder titled Trash, which automatically appears as a sub-file... Read more

After receiving no replies, either +ve or -ve, although so far there have been well over 200 views, after that I'll give up on this site entirely and just ask my local PC Guru.

HELP!! Does anyone know HOW to customzie the Date and Time stamp on emails in Outlook 2010? I want each and every single email to show up in my Inbox (whether read or un-read/new) as the DATE, i.e. 6/19/2012 9:24am I do NOT want the words "Today" or "Yesterday" or "Tues" - AND - I want the entire DATE to appear and the TIME to appear on every message. I find and sort emails by time and date. I used to have that as a default in Outlook 2003. How do I change the default in 2010 to be what I want?

Hello all. Thanks in advance for whatever help you can give me.

Background -
I am running Windows 7 (Home Premium 64b) with Office 2010 (Home & Bus) on our new desktop PC. Just finished installing both without problem. Have now turned to adding email accounts to Outlook. I added 4 POP3 accounts, using the wizard. The wizard's test mails - and my own independently sent test mails - have confirmed that send/receive work fine in all 4. One of the 4 has been selected as my default account.

All 4 accounts show up in the navigation pane on the far left of the screen. The default account appears at top, with a black arrowhead to the left of its name. Under it appear the standard list of system-offered subfolders: Inbox, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items, Junk Mail, Calendar, Contacts etc. etc.

The other three accounts are listed below this array. Each of them has a white arrowhead to the left of its name. None of these accounts has any system-offered subfolders (Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items etc) listed under it.

Question -
How do I get Inbox, Sent Items, Deleted Items and the other system-offered subfolders to appear under these non-default accounts in the Navigation Pane? For example, I know (from viewing the same accounts independently on my laptop) that these non-default accounts are receiving mail; however, I cannot view any of this mail because the Inboxes of these accounts are not accessible from the Navigation Pane. I would like all 3 non-defaul... Read more

In Word 2010 the navigation pane is great, but is there a way to collapse the outline structure? When I open a doc, the nav pane is completely expanded, and as this doc is huge and has multiple nested headings, it takes a while to scroll to where I need to be. If I could show main headings only, things would be much easier.

Is there a way to do this? Any help much appreciated.

Hi, greenery. I found the following information at Use outlines to structure notes and ideas - OneNote - Microsoft Office

Expand or collapse an outline

You can use the Expand and Collapse commands on the Outlining toolbar to view certain levels of the outline.
Click the paragraph handle next to any text at the level that you want to expand or collapse.
If the Outlining toolbar is not already showing, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Outlining.
On the Outlining toolbar, do one of the following:To expand the outline elements, click Expand, and then click a level to show all paragraphs that are at that level.
To collapse the elements, click Collapse, and then click a level to hide all paragraphs that are at that level.

Note Whenever you collapse a paragraph in an outline by clicking its handle, be sure you use the Type Text or Select Objects tool instead of the Pen tool.

At Expand and Collapse Headings in Word Outline it shows how to expand/collapse more than one heading section at a time by selecting the part you want to expand/collapse. Then click the appropriate button from the Outline Tools group on the Outlining tab.

I upgraded to Office 2013 a number of months ago and have a problem I can't find the answer to that has finally driven me crazy enough to ask about.

In the navigation pane you have the mailbox with all it's sub folders (inbox, sent, deleted etc.) I collapse the mailbox and work primarily out of PST folders and the Inbox, Sent, and Deleted links in the Favorites section above this.

Randomly the mailbox will expand so I can see all these folders again. Not sure why - I'm guessing it's from things like an email auto-saved to Drafts - when the mailbox expands the main PST folder I use drop out of site and I have to scroll down to them (such a big hassle right?)

Outlook 2010 had no issues with this, you collapse the mailbox it stayed that way until outlook was closed and opened again or you manually expanded the mailbox folder list. Is there a way to keep the mailbox collapsed?

A:Outlook 2013 navigation pane help

I haven't noticed this myself, but maybe if you add these other folders to favorites, it might help. I mean Drafts for example.

Today I was advised by a friend that my date stamp on my email came in a couple hours ahead of what time it actually was. I noticed the same thing on my incoming mail. The thought was my clock was off, but it was fine. When I open the mail the date stamp is correct. I believe I took in an update from Microsoft yesterday that addresses the fact that Daylight Savings Time is coming three weeks earlier this year than XP is expecting.

I have spoke to someone who is dependent on sending customers' emails. It is vital that the email dates are correct. I think the problem started when the clocks went ahead.I have instructed them to do all updates for outlook 2003. I verified that the problem is not related to their email host. The date stramps are correct when they send out email usijng webmail. Her computer is free of viruses and spyware and is maintained very well. She did a detect and repair as well.She has Mcafee as her antivirus scanner and no firewalls that I know of.I spoke to her email server and they have not any such issues regarding their server.Maybe someone out there has dealt with thiis before. My hunch is that maybe by upgrading to outlook 2007, this problem would get resolved. She doesn't want to use outlook express, which has it's own problems and is not supported any more.I am clueless to what would be the next step.

If I create a new folder in Outlook and move emails there, the date/time stamp of these emails change to the date/time I created the folder.

Doesn't happen when I move them to existing folders though, only new folders.

When I open an instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane show little or nothing (no drives, folders, etc.). Also the preview pane does not show a preview for any selected files (See Capture1.JPG).
If I open a second (or higher) instance of windows explorer, the navigation pane functions properly (the preview still does not show) (See Capture2.JPG).
I have previews set to show (See Capture3.JPG).
Also occasionally, the file icons will be blank instead of showing the file type specific icon. When this happens, the address bar also seems to take a long time to load. The load bar will stop before reaching the end and won't finish (See Capture4.JPG).

Does anyone know what is going on or how to fix this?

I've tried to send a delayed email using the "Do Not Deliver Before" function. Hoping the email would be date/time stamped when I wanted the recipient to receive the email. For example, sent the email on a Tuesday and scheduled the email to be delivered the next day (Wednesday) at 10am. The function did delay sending the email, but the date/time stamp was when I originally hit sent on Tuesday. What is the purpose of this feature if the date/time stamp will not indicate the date/time I wanted the recipient to receive the email?

When using this function, is there a way for the exchange to track the date/time stamp of the email when it actually leaves the Outbox instead of when you click send? I understand the exchange keeps track of the date/time stamp of when an email is sent, but why couldn't the exchange keep track of when the email leaves the outbox when using this function? Is there any exchange setup that will make this function work the way it is supposed to? Thank you

A:Navigation Pane and Navigation Bar not showing up!

The Windows Theme Installer is most likely responsible for corrupting Explorer so I would get rid of it. It's isn't wise to install any third-party utilities which modify Windows' system files, at least not unless you have a complete system backup strategy in place such as a disk image.

System Restore cannot be relied on to get you out trouble because old restore points are automatically deleted when the maximum disk space assigned to SR is reached. So a more permanent system backup method is required, especially in cases where corruption is so bad that Windows won't even start.

In the bottom of the navagation pane is the two icons I checked Calandar and Tasks. Nothing else is in the navigation pane which is exactly what I want

You have two options for doing this:

Select the percentage% you want the fonts to be displayed at.

Note: The fonts may not appear large when you are viewing them on the reading pane or double click open the email. For that view you will have to always manually zoom it yourself on the right corner in the bottom but you will be able to see the fonts large when you hit reply after doing the 2 points mentioned above.

When I take a picture with my Android phone, the date and time when the picture was taken is recorded, in the filename as well as in the JPG picture-file itself; all very convenient. To my horror I noticed that my phone reacts in an idiotic way to the GSM connection being lost: the date of the picture is 'reset' to, apparently, the date the device was manufactured. Subsequent pictures apparently start counting from there. This completely messes up the chronology of my pictures: all pics taken with no GSM connection end up with date/times on the same day, years ago.
I completely fail to understand why this is so and would like to know if this behaviour is particular to my device or if others experienced the same thing. Is it a bug or a feature?
I experimented with various methods to set the time: manual, from GSM-network or from GPS. I would have thought that using manual or GPS would remedy things, but it didn't. (Although it had some effect on Daylight Saving Time issues, but that's another story.)

I'm trying to make it so that Navigation pane would be disabled whenever I open folder shortcuts, such as music, documents, pictures, but I want to keep it enabled when I got to My computer or Windows explorer. However it seems that its either enabled or disabled for all folders. Any way to fix that?

Also, is there anyway to make windows remember each folders individual settings? It seems whenever I open a folder, and resize it, any other folder will open exactly the same size as the previous open folder. I believe even Windows XP had an option to remember folder settings.

This excelent feature we had in XP, was taken out of 7.
In point of fact, the more one uses Windows Explorer the more I hate it.

So far no fix but there are a couple of apps out there that will lock size and position of any window when its re opened.

Thank You!

I have question for you dear members:
- Recently I purchased the new version of TuneUp utilities and after installing i got displayed disk devices in my navigational pane. I don't like that so i want to reverse settings like before were was only under my computer displayed hard disk devices.

After installing TU utilities:

Can you help me: -how to do that?
I tried with folder properties(show/hide empty drives), also hide items in navigation pane but no luck.
also i tried registry snap - but it was to plenty things for my understandings, also i tried Windows 7 navigation pane customizer - and it works until you don't load explorer again?
Please, What I must do(except uninstalling of TU off) to get my navigation pane without disk drives?
Mr. Shawn, Help me!

Thank You!

Microsoft Word's Navigation pane theoretically has keyboard shortcuts associated with the right-click menu items available there, e.g.:Alt-E: Expand All
Alt-C: Collapse All
In particular, I'd like to know the shortcut sequence to collapse the heading levels displayed to 2. The sequence indicated is Alt-H,Alt-2.

The problem is that I can't figure out how to initiate these shortcuts within the context of the Navigation menu. For instance, when the Navigation pane is active and I use Alt-H, it still shifts focus to the Home tab (the "global" binding of Alt-H).

How can I use keyboard shortcuts to access the menu items in the Navigation pane?

Something that has been bugging the hell out of me, since Vista, is that the old XP file explorer was replaced with the new Libraries opening window. That's fine, but why the hell does Computer have to be all the way to the bottom.

Ya if I was a novice user I might be inclined to use those folders more frequently, but as an IT guru, this is nuts. If I download, move, or copy anything to an external hard drive, USB, or DVD, I always have scroll down the Navigation Pane. This is such a little thing that it's almost stupid that you can't slide these categories up and down. This way users can set their most used categories to the top. If you can move columns back and forth, it makes no sense that you cant do it for the nav pane.

I know I can make a shortcut pointing the file location to %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe /E,::{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D} will allow me to create the Computer shortcut which can be use to pin to the taskbar. I've seen 3rd party software bring back the old XP explorer nav pane and I've also seen one that either adds or hides the Navigation Pane items.

It really is silly not to add something like this that is so simple to do for Microsoft. But does anyone know if there's any registry entry I can use, or some 3rd party software that does this for Windows 8?

Hopefully I?m in the most appropriate location for this inquiry.

In my pc navigation pane for my main pc it goes Desktop, then the Libraries (Documents, Downloads, etc), Homegroup, Computer (with the listed drives), then last Network. In my secondary pc between Homegroup and Computer it has ?Admin? with many of the same Library menus along with AppData. I would really like to get rid of this extra file location. It used to also have a download location that was a pain and I changed the paths for that but I would still like to get rid of it totally. I was also able to delete some other things that were empty. I think this must be something the previous owner set up as I don?t think I have ever seen one set up like this.

Not sure but for one thing it appears the AppData in that Admin listing is linked to the User AppData files. I certainly don?t want to delete it if I can?t and cause a mess, but I would really like to clean things up. There is enough confusion and potential problems as it is. Anyone know how to do this? I think this may be the default location for AppData so a path may have to be changed or maybe this is some kind of shared folders situation that needs to be undone. I can make a backup of the AppData files in case deleting it needs to be reversed. Or maybe if this is not really a secondary location using up hard drive space there is a way to hide this listing.

When I click on an item inthe navigation pane and want to scroll down to a certain folder in the main window, the mouse wheel stays on the nav pane. Have to go and click in the main window to scroll.

If you click the navigation pane, then the wheel should in my opinion default over to scroll on the main pane. It's a little bothersome to have to keep clikckingto scroll after i just cliked to open that item in the navitgation pane already.

confused yet? maybe the pic will better describe it. I know it's not a big deal, but......

Can I please have a few more letters added to the alphabet please. 24 just isn't enough

At the moment I have an XP computer with 6 x 2TB drives in it. No redundant technologies at all. These 6 drives are partitioned to various sizes to accomodate the various categories of information that I have.

For example, I have 2TB set up for movies. I have a drive of 128GB set up just for service packs, updates and patches. 128GB for music... You get the idea.

I just added a 1TB drive for backups. I can then free of the 700gb currently on the server for other purposes (extending existing drives), and so I can get important data backed up regularly.

Problem is, I need to keep a drive spare for my USB stick. So I'm out of drive letters. Oh, I mean on the client, not the server. I have 3 letters left on the server. But my PC has 2 x DVD/RW, 1 x BD-ROM, and 1 Virtual drive. Yes, I have thought about taking one of the DVD drives out.

I've downloaded Librarian and have set up a number of libraries that basically mirror the drive letters. I can access the libraries within applications. But not from "computer" unless I turn on the navigation pane, which drives me nuts.

Since I can't have more letters in the alphabet, I'd really like to get rid of the drive letter concept alltogether if I could and access data inside and outside of applications some other way.

hello Mr Shawn Brink

i tried to PM you, but the system didn't let me, since this is my first post :P

following the text from the PM:
I just did read (and do) your instructions about removing OneDrive from the left explorer-pane. (and the quick-access pane)
after reading a few hour, its great to see your post. with your instructions it was done in 2/3 mins

but now the question...
since this is about DropBox and not about OneDrive, i thought i would b a better idea to just pm you...

I want to remove the DropBox item from the left-explorer-pane, but i do not want to remove (uninstall) dropbox...

you have any quick instructions?
thank you very much in advance

as u see i didn't want to go off-topic :P
lol, now i posted it in the wrong topic also :P

So I have an issue with my Windows 7 Navigation Pane only for save as or open in Word, Excel, and Firefox. My Windows Explorer Navigation Pane is functioning just fine and folders are displayed on the left but if I want to save or open something I am receiving the following screens: (I have included a save page as firefox SS, Word Open SS and Save As Open SS). The kicker is I can't enter what to save the file as in word and it is a rather strange issue. I have checked the registry and am unsure about where this is located and have googled everywhere with no luck. Any help is GREATLY appreciated in resolving this issue.

Sorry that the 3rd SS is cropped, did that accidentally. It basically looks just like the Open SS without the text box. Clicking on the Tools area and the Show Folders area (on save as) does absolutely nothing.

Ok so I know it is possible to remove things from the libraries pane in explorer which I have done, but this question is not about the explorer libraries pane but it is about the open file/folder/whatever libraries pane. How do you get rid of "Favorites", "Homegroup", and "Network"? If you only use the normal tutorial it will remove it from the open menu of atleast notepad and paint, and I'm sure it does the same for some other windows based programs. But if you use any other program like office when you select open the libraries pane is just how it was at the beginning, how do we change this?

Hope this was clear enough

I want to get rid of these in the save menu too.

I have followed all the steps in the tutorial on removing Favorites from the navigation pane.

Favorites - Add or Remove from Navigation Pane in Windows 8

The right-click solution does not work because "show favourites" option does not come up when I right click. The second solution using the folder option is not possible because there is no option to check or uncheck I have even tried with th bat. file, but no change took place.

I would be grateful for any feedback on this and maybe a little help
