Show date in Finder and Mail but not as Today or Yesterday etc.

I really would like all display of date in Mail, Finder and elsewhere to stop showing "Three days ago, Two days ago, Yesterday or Today, but instead just show the date and time too if the column is wider.

Does anyone know how to change this or if it can be changed? It used to be that one could narrow the date column to the state of showing only dates but now on Lion this does not work anymore.

For the Finder,
    Open any window in the Finder.
    Under View, select Show View Options.
    Near the bottom, Uncheck Use Relative Dates.
    If you want it to apply to all Finder windows, hit the button "Use as Defaults".
For Mail,
    I assume you are trying to use the Classic display of Mail
        (Mail : Preferences: Viewing : Check Use Classic Layout)
    I haven't found an option for Relative Dates, other than that
    changing the width of the column is what makes the difference.
