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?

Thanks!  I knew it had to be in those menus somewhere.
