The default view uses sent date field, whcih is blank and displayed as none, because the message hasn’t been sent yet.
So follow these steps to add modified date to othe view

  2. Choose View Settings (Outlook 2010) or Custom (Outlook 2007 and older)

  4. Select date/Time fields from the “Select available columns from” menu
  5. Click on modified and Add to add it to the view then close the dialog
