    Identifying sent and received items (2003)

    Dear Longers,

    I need to identify items that I sent and items that I recieved, is this a correct assumption and always true?:

    Items I have received will have received date and time equal to or after sent date & time
    Items I have sent will have a recieved date & time before the sent date & time

    or is there a better way?

    thank you......... liz

    Items you receive are in your Inbox and will probably not have your name in the From box.
    Items tou send are in your Sent Items folder and will probably have your name in the From box.

    Using date/time is not entirely dependable, since the clock on the sender's PC or yours might be off.

    Re: Identifying sent and received items (2003)

    I'm confused: isn't it easier to look at "From:" and "To:" fields? In a default Outlook install, the Inbox Folder View has "From:" but not "To:", and the Sent Folder View has "To:" but not "From:". If you have set Outlook to save your Sent messages in the Inbox, or you have set all received and sent messages to be saved in some other folder, you can use the Field Chooser to show both "To:" and "From:" in the View. Or you can make this change to both Inbox and Sent Folder Views.

    John & Hans,

    Rather than explain the complexity that we have found oursleves in I should say, thanks for thinking about it. We have resolved this another way. Although I do think it would be useful to know if a mail was sent or received by account in question (it becomes messy if mail is both sent from an address and may be recieved from that same address)

    anyway, as always, thanks for reading ......... liz

    I'm sorry that our comments were not more useful; is this a case where you have multiple accounts, including yours, all being "collected" in a single Outlook client application?

    Can you exlain a little more and explain what was done to resolve the problem?
