Such is not required in emails.

Some may find it odd that such is not a required field for internet email. Given only what's in your post and what's required for an (internet) email, nothing is wrong here.

May not be required,

It may not be required, but it is a fast way to see when a email is sent or received. It is inportant for me to see this information at a glance.

Are you talking about the COLUMNS?

If so, you can right click on the columns and select which you want. But again, nothing in Internet Email standards force me to deliver email with a date and time stamp which does infuriate a certain person who challenged me on this and I sent them a few without the date/time. "This shouldn't be!!!"

I guess I am not clear

I guess I am not clear. The time, day, date, and year stamp is automaticly generated by outlook express on every email you send or receive. Can anyone help? has anyone seen this problem before?

Thanks

This is not true.

You claim "The time, day, date, and year stamp is automaticly generated by outlook express on every email you send or receive. Can anyone help? has anyone seen this problem before?"

But Microsoft documents this:
"When you receive Hotmail messages, they may not contain the entire date or time."

Again, this area is not perfect and any other clue you can provide would help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
