    Set Mail app to show mail subject on top instead of sender

    In the Mail app's list view, I would like to view the mail's subject on top for each item. The default is showing the senders of the mail conversation on top, then the subject with smaller font, then the content brief.

    In the Outlook app, I used to be able to set this order. Is it somehow possible for Mail?

    I looked in all the options of the app and the help it linked to. Also googled some, but not exactly sure what I'm supposed to search for to reduce irrelevant results.

    Mail app will not open on 10041.

    Hello Adam,

    This is the suggested solution below if you haven't already tried it. Wrong Sender Shown in Mail App :)

    In this Windows 10 build 10041, the Mail, Calendar, and People apps may be broken due to a licensing issue with the Store Beta. To get these apps working again, you need to follow these steps:

    • Open powershell as administrator
    • Run the command Get-appxprovisionedpackage –online | where-object {$_.packagename –like “*windowscommunicationsapps*”} | remove-appxprovisionedpackage –online
    • Re-install Mail, People and Calendar from the Store (green tile)

    How to check the properties of a senders email in mail app

    Hi Roger,

    Thank you for posting in Community.

    We are glad to provide the assistance required to help resolve your issue.

    As per the information you have provided, I would like to inform that you can see/view the properties or details in mail app only after you save the contacts onto your list. You can however click or hover on the sender name which will display his email address.

    Keep in mind that mail app cannot display in depth details about the sender as compared to your Windows Live Mail. Having stated so, I suggest that you share your suggestions and concerns in our Feedback app regarding the same so that our developers can
    work toward enhancing the Windows 10 experience.

    Hope this helps
