    Is there any way that I can Arrange and view my emails the normal classic way
    which is to see the following tabs: From, Subject, recieved, size, date in
    the same line? Im using Windows Live Mail Desktop Beta.

  3. Not at this time, since you cannot customize the columns available.
    There is a newsgroup for WLMD Beta though, which is where you should
    post any questions about that program. Please note this newsgroup is
    for questions with Vista and Windows Mail, not the Desktop beta. Post
    further questions to the newsgroup below:

    But in fact, this should not be customized, that way (classic) should be the
    default way of viewing emails, since the current view is customized to either
    be arranged by recieved or Subject or From, which is not a clean way of
    showing emails, each record takes 2 lines and its not easy to view when the
    subject is under the name as well, in addition to lost space in the middle !!

  6. Yes there is, right click on the column headers, and click on columns.... This will allow you to choose which ones you want showing, then when you want to reorder them, just drag them (by the column heading) into the place you want.

    I am weak on the usage of communities, so I am not sure of all of the
    politics going on here. I did want to note that Scott's answer, if not
    correct before, is correct now, as I have recently started working with the

    I don't know if it will help, but I wanted to add the keyword "sort" to this
    answer as well, as I was unable to find anything in the help WLMD or
    communities by this keyword.

    Thank you all for your help in getting this issue posted, fixed, and answered.
