Outlook looses field choices

I'm using Outlook 2003 SP2.

I setup my fields in Outlook using RightClick/FieldChooser (I remove To and replace it with From). That seems to work but after a week or so (rebooting every day) it brings back To.

Does anyone know what is going on?

Seems like your customized view is not holding.  Clear all your views with a command line, and setup the view. It should hold.  Go to Start > Run and type

outlook.exe /cleanviews

and hit OK.

I have lots of options setup. What exactly does that clear? Where are the views saved so I can make a backup first?

Views are saved in registry. I do not know exactly where they are located.  So if do not want to clear all the views, then you need to live with this intermittent problem.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ok, I ran the procedure and I will let you know if the problem comes back. Since it takes a week or so then it may be a couple of weeks before I get back with you.

Thanks

I tried what you suggested. That seems to have fixed it but it has the negative effect of not showing pictures in email after I right click on the picture and select "download pictures" ... after downloading pictures I now have to save the email and re-open it whereas before the pictures came up after downloading.

Go to View menu and select to show pictures.

But won't that always show the pictures? I would prefer having the option for security reasons.

You have the strange problem of having to save the email before seeing the picture. Toggle the view picture setting in View may fix the problem.
