How do I display the email date in the Outlook Reading Pane?

I've done an Internet search, but i can't find how to display the date and
time of an email message when the message is displayed in the Reading Pane of
Outlook 2003.

The date is displayed in the Inbox list of messages, but not in the message
itself, which only shows the subject, sender, and recipient(s). I'd like to
set the date/time stamp there as well.

Thanks.

RE: How do I display the email date in the Outlook Reading Pane?

Actually, I was hoping to be able to see all the "usual" headers: subject,
from, to, cc, bcc, date/time. I only see subject, from, and to; and only the
"to" is labled as such. The few email programs I've used show all of those
by default, and am wonder how to make Outlook do the same.

I know you can open the message, select "View -> Options..." and see all of
the Internet headers, but that's more than I want to see, and more trouble
than I want to go through.

The Reading Pane doesn't display that information and you can't adjust it.
However, the received date is clearly shown in the table list above the
Reading Pane when you display it at the bottom (View>Reading Pane>Bottom) or
if you hover over the message in the table list when the Reding Pane is on
the right (View>Reading Pane>Right).

If you double-click the email, is it displayed then?

Yes, the date/time is displayed there, but I was hoping to see it in the
Reading Pane, too.
