256986 Description of the Microsoft Windows registry
You send an e-mail message while you work in Offline mode, and then you view the message in the Sent Items folder. The To box and the Sent box may not be populated on the message in the Sent Items folder.
When your e-mail profile is configured to use an Internet Message Access Protocol (IMAP) e-mail server, the default view for the Sent Items folder displays the From box, the Subject box, and the Received box. This problem occurs when you want to change the Sent Items folder to a different view. For example, you may want to see the To box, the Subject box, and the Sent box on e-mail messages in the Sent Items folder. This problem also occurs in MAPI mode.
