email sender name missing from email folder lists

email sender name missing from email folder lists

With no action taken by me in Preferences for email, etc., the column in each of my email folders showing email senders has disappeared, even when the view is in full-screen mode.  This is for all folders and subfolders in my email account.   I have a second account for which this is not the case..... Can someone tell me how to restore this function, so that I can efficiently process inbound email?

Re: email sender name missing from email folder lists

Can you clarify----------are you referring to the columns in the message list?  Are you on the old format or the new one?

Re: email sender name missing from email folder lists

Sorry, but I believe that those are the only columns there are.  I am referring to the fact that when attempting to view the contents of an email folder, the senders' names do not show.  I am thus required to view each email, whether spam or legitimate.  Takes much time.  Computer is a new iMac, and I am not aware of a new or old format.  If you can, please ID the differences between those formats, and thank you.
