    Recently I up-graded to OE6, but now the date shown in the recieved column on the inbox is set as USA format (02/23/05), where I want to change it to UK style (23/02/05). No joy.
    I've reset the 'Read' settings to western european(windows) in OE and the regional settings in Control panel. All with no luck.

    Any tips?? ;)

    Hi exceller

    Outlook Express uses the date format from the regional settings in Control Panel.

    Did you make these changes while Outlook Express was open?

    With Outlook Express closed, try changing the date to a different style altogether.
    Restart Outlook Express, then close.

    Change the date to the format you want and restart Outlook Express.

    Have you tried creating a new Identity in Outlook Express to see if the changes work in the new Identity?
    File > Identities > Add New Identity

    Let us know

    Regional Settings is the answer - I have just reset mine to day - month - year.

    Problem sorted.
    Went back to Regional settings and installed another Country and started OE. Then close OE down and went back to Regional settings and reselcted UK setting and Bingo it ok.

    Thanks for your help
