Hi, wallslx.

Views are shared between folders.  If you modified one of the default views, e.g. Messages, then whatever changes you made will be visible in any folder using that view.  If you want a view with a unique column in just one folder, then you have to create a new view.  In the creation process you'll be asked if you want the new view to be visible to all folders or just the folder you're in.  Choose the latter.

I see. I guess my real question is:
How to make all subfolders look the same as the Inbox folder (fields shown and field formatting)?

Create or modify a view.  When you create the view be sure to set the option to make it visible to all folders.  As you visit each folder, switch it to this view.
