    Taking the main Inbox, I spent some effort in customising the view to remove the Reading pane, remove some columns, change the various fonts and sizes, and so on. I now want to mirror this customised view in many of the other folders, like Sent, and several subfolders of Inbox, without having to repeat all the original steps.

    I haven't seen a way to do this in Outlook, and searching would require me to hit on the exact terminology, which I have so far failed to do.

    Can it be done, please?

    You have to customize a named view for this, not the "current" view. See Disable Group Views - as the article explains, it has a wider bearing than the title suggests.

    Thanks, Hans - I would have never have found that, ever!

    If I could tack on a couple of associated Outlook 2003 queries?

    [attachment=86572:Outlook.GIF]


    As you can see, the Inbox is now displayed in 'My Layout'!
    1. Is there a way of increasing the typesize of the contents of the Folder List/All Folders?
    2. And of removing the two lines "Folder Sizes" and "Data File Management..."?
    Thanks!

    > Is there a way of increasing the typesize of the contents of the Folder List/All Folders?

    Alas, no (except by changing your display properties globally in Windows). Same in Outlook 2007 - see Can I change the font in the Navigation Pane?.

    > And of removing the two lines "Folder Sizes" and "Data File Management..."?

    Again, no, according to Outlook MVPs Milly Staples and Diane Poremsky.

    Thanks - not desperately important, fortunately!

    Add a few more folders and you'll never notice those. Until you mentioned them, I don't think I had ever scrolled down that far.

    Yes, I handled this problem by setting up a "StandardMailView" view with all the settings as I wished them. Then, each time I add a new folder I click the View Menu, then Current View, then make sure the StandardMailView is checked for that folder.
