I'm having one of those dizzy moments - I'm using Office XP, and Word as the message editor for Outlook (just Internet mail, not connected to exchange).  
How do I get it to show the "From" field to show in a new message?  I've looked everywhere and can't see it.

Duh!

In Outlook, click Tools-Options and turn off using Word.  Now create a new message and click View and check the From field.  Close the message, turn Word back on as the editor, and create a new message.  I have noticed a few things that don't behave the way they should when Word is the editor.
