    On the wife's machines, some how a column has been added on the left side of the listing of emails, it shows at the top "Today", then lower "a day of the week" and then below that "Older"

    I did something and it pop up a "Peek" of the calendar. So I think this is related to the Peek function.

    She would like to get rid of this column as it adds nothing for her use.
    I do not have this showing on my machines.

    If it's literally showing as a column, which I've never seen, you can simply right click on the column heading and then choose Remove This Column from the context menu presented.

    I am completely accustomed to the grouping of conversations by date, and those date groups are indicated on the left, but not as an individual column per message. It's the default view for conversations. If one does not choose to view by conversations the view does change.

    This is normal if you are sorting by date received.

    James, yes that is what started showing. We have always listed by date received.
    Britekguy, the column is NOT included in the list to be turned off.

    Well she found that her listing was "Compacted" and by turning it off they disappeared.

    Edit:
    go to the View tab, left side of ribbon, click Change View and there you can select a different display

    I've never had any version of Outlook since at least 2007 fail to present the fields shown in the screenshot by @Couriant. They're the default presentation for messages or conversations (threads) sorted by date. You have to go through gyrations I've never gone through to get rid of them.

    Personally, I find them very helpful as far as finding something recent quickly "by eye scan." By the time I get to "older" I know a search is in order if I haven't seen something that rings a bell that I'm looking for.

    We have been using Outlook since it came on the FREE CD with Outlook 95 (I Think) on it.
    We go through and get rid of things like "Groups" lines between emails and etc.
    We like a clean looking list.
