I would like to show the subject line on the email header in my inbox instead of the size as shown on the email. I can't seem to find a setting for it and I'm sure I've done it before.

Thanks for any help.

    Use the Field Chooser - right-click in the bar where it says "Arranged by:" on your screenshot and click Field Chooser.

    Right click on the bar at the top >

    Click on the Fields... button. Then arrange them as desired. if Size is after From field it will get pushed under first.

    If you add the column, it should show the contents of that field in the header...

    I see you're using the Reading Pane on the right in Outlook 2007. Here is how to get the Subject back in place of where the Size is currently.

    Go to View > Arrange By > Custom > click the Fields button. In the section called Show these fields in this order, click on the Size field and then click the Move Down button. We want the Subject field beneath the From field in that list. Click OK and OK again to exit these windows and then you should see your view with the Subject line now where the Size was shown before.
