No Column Headings in New Email Format

No Column Headings in New Email Format

The new version (actually it has been out for a while) Comcast Email does not show headings for my email folders and the settings does not show any way of adding them. This is terribly inconvenient and I see no answer on the Forum. The only comment refers to the older version of Comcast email. Does anyone have any idea on if this is fixable?

Re: No Column Headings in New Email Format

Do you mean like the old columns for things like Date, Size and so on?  If so, no, those don't exist in the new format.  Instead, you would sort by those criteria.  The new design is from a different vendor (Appsuite), and is intended to be more minimalist to better accommodate use on small mobile device screens as well as still being usable on laptop or desktop computers.

Re: No Column Headings in New Email Format

Thanks but the problem is that I create folders to group various emails that I want to save. In that folder will be some that I sent and some that I received. For example, without column headinds for From and To I cannot sort by the emails I sent to someone. "TO" is not one of the available sort fields in a folder I create, it only is available in the Sent folder.

Then you can run a search for the name of the person or their email address.  You can specify the folder you want to search or "All folders".

Re: No Column Headings in New Email Format

I was hoping for a less cumbersome method. Having column headings that I could both control and tailor (like Outlook) is very nice. I suppose since Comcast is a web based  application I am out of luck.
