I want to rearrange and resize the columns and reformat the date column for all the folders in Outlook, without having to make the changes in each folder.  How can I globally, rearrange, resize and reformat the columns in all the folders inside Personal Folders?

Greetings, DanR.

Are all of the folders using the same view?

Then any change you make to the view will be reflected in all folders using it (the view).  All you should need to do is edit the view in question.  See this article for more details:
