Hey guys I am needing to see if outlook express can show you when you have forwarded or replied to a message.  I know that this is possible in Outlook Web Access.  Is it possible in Outlook Express?  If so how would I go about finding it.

Hello ltwilliams,

No, Outlook Express cannot show you whether you have replied to a message.  That is why it is called "Express".

Hope this helps!

ltwilliams--Look in the Sent Items folder?  I keep messages (that I send) in that folder until I do not expect to need to refer to them any more.

well I have discovered that there is no text available to tell you that you have replied or forwarded a message but there is an indication of arrows in front of the message indicating replied or forwarded.

ltwilliams--Yes, that is in the Inbox.  Of course that does not tell you what you said.

So you don't have sent messages (ie. sent, replied to, and forwarded) saved to your "Sent Items" folder?
I don't suppose you do, otherwise you wouldn't be asking the question.

However, it could be that you DO have sent messages in the Sent Items folder, but just aren't seeing any immediate means to know when that message was sent, replied to, or forwarded without actually opening the message or right-clicking and choosing "properties".

If that is the case, then it is probable that you don't have the "Sent" column showing in the Sent Items folder, but it's easy enough to show it.

Click on your "Sent Items" folder so that it shows all the sent messages.
Open the "View" menu and choose "Columns..."
Tick the box entitled "Sent".
That instantly shows you the date in a column that you can either drag into a different position or again use the View > Columns dialog to position it where you want.
