Need to set all Outlook message columns

I want to set all folders containing messages (including all the folders in all my *.pst) files to the same set of columns to display.

I want them all to have from: and to: fields.

It seems like I have to do this folder by folder.

Is there somewhere to set the view for all message folders and to set them to something other than the default (which does not have the to: field)?

I'm using Outlook 2010 on Windows 7 (64-bit).

Sure is.

Go to any folder that you have setup like you would like the rest to be

Then at the top of the ribbon click on View
Click on Change View

Then Choose Apply Current View, to other mail folders

Then simply select the folders you want to apply it to

and wa-la!

that's still a one-by-one thing.  I have thousands of folders.

Luckily despite having to apply this on folders, there is an apply to subfolders option which got me there.
