columns in email folders

If you've ever used Outlook you know you can rearrange columns, change width, add fields, a lot of different things. I want to make a new column in my archive email folders. For example, in one of my archive folders I save SENT mail. The first column, of course is FROM and of course it's from ME. I want to change that to TO: I know who sent it, I want to be able to see who I sent it to when I'm looking for archived message.  I would also like to change the width of columns in order to perhaps add a field like you can in Outlook. 

Any ideas?

Yes, it's considered webmail, as long as you access it in a web browser.  However, the software that is being used for residential email, Appsuite, is not set up to do what you want it to do.

 

You might want to try using Thunderbird because it is very similar to the standalone Outlook client and it is free.
