Outlook 2007 Sent Items reverting to Sent By view

Dear Experts,

One particular users sent items shows all his emails from him. After looking into the customize view menu etc all I can do is add the "To" column to the list and sort it so that it displays correctly.

This is all well and good until outlook restarts and then the view reverts back to showing his name for all emails being sent and no "To" column again.

Info:
The client connects over LAN locally to MS Exchange 2007.
This was an upgrade installation from 2003 to 2007 which worked ok until this.
I have since uninstalled office and performed a clean installation of it and outlook still does the same thing :(

Does anyone have any suggestions on this please?

Many thanks in advance
Steve

First thing i would try is to reset the view.

Go to the sent items and then:

View-> Arrange By-> Custom then click Reset Current View .

You can also use these menues to add the To field

You could also try starting outlook with the /cleanviews switch

Are you using the below to get it to show the 'To' Field,  if not give it a go.

View-> Current View-> Sent To
