  • Click View settings
  • Click Format columns
  • Choose Received from Available Fields
  • Pick the format you want.

  • Go to View tab Click on 'View Settings' button (second from the left)
  • Click 'Format Columns'
  • In 'Available Fields' on the left highlight 'Received'
  • From the 'Format' drop-down menu, choose how you want it displayed. I have Tue 8/12/2014 12:45 PM selected.
  • Click OK
  • Click OK again.
