I have Outlook 6 and for some reason the layout for creating mail has changed. Now in the top bar, my address appears instead of the recipients address. How can I change this please.

When you click on "create mail" a new window opens with the title "new message". The top bar is "To:". Do you see your own address in the "To:" bar when you press "create mail"? What happens when you click "To". Do you have your address book open? Can you choose an address from there? If you can, is the new address added to your own address?

Just want to make sure that I understand the problem.

All my bars are making the correct entries. What has changed is that the "to" bar is not on top. My address is in the "from" bar but is in the top bar which previously had my "to" information. This is not a big deal but I found the previous layout..with my contact as top bar was very convienient>

That happens when you add another account. When you have more then one mail account Outlook Express opens the "from" line on top with the default account written down. This is done to enable you to choose from which account the letter is sent. This is normal. If you wish to return to the previous layout you must delete accounts in Tools > accounts. Only when you are lwft with one account will the "from" bar disappear and "to" show up at the top.
