Chapter 19. Communicating with Windows Mail > Customizing the Message Columns

Customizing the Message Columns

The default columns in Windows Mail tell you the basic information you need for any message. More information is available, however. For example, you might want to know the date and time the message was sent, the size of the message, and to whom the message was sent. You can display these items as columns in the message list. Here are the steps to follow to customize the Windows Mail columns:

1.
Select View, Columns. (You can also right-click any column header and then click Columns.) Windows Mail displays the Columns dialog box, shown in Figure 19.3.

Figure 19.3. Use the Columns dialog box to customize the columns displayed in the message list.


2.
To add a column, either activate its check box or select it and click Show.

3.
To remove a column, either deactivate its check box or select it and click Hide.

4.
To change the order of the columns, select a column and then use the Move Up and Move Down buttons to position the column where you want it. (Columns listed top to bottom display from left to right in the message list.)

5.
To control the width of a column, select it and enter a new value in the The Selected Column Should Be X Pixels Wide text box.

6.
Click OK.
