    OE Address book (6.0)

    Is it possible to add columns to the detailed view of contacts in this address book? Mine shows four columns at moment

    Yup, just hover the mouse over the line between the columns until you get the doubleheaded arrow, then click and drag to the left or the right (left makes smaller, hence more columns; right makes larger, less columns). Just fiddle about with it until you have the number and width you want.

    Oops, sorry, ignore my last post - I was thinking Outlook, not Outlook Express! <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>

    I can't remember detail off the top of my head, but I think it's either under View in the address book or rightclick on the column headings to edit ... I'll check when I get home tonight! (don't have it here at work).

    Sorry!

    I see the ability to add columns in the OE message panel but not on the address panel display

    Okay - as I said, I'll check tonight! In the meantime, someone else might hop in with the right answer ...

    AFAIK it is not possible to add tp the default columns shown in the default OE Address Book.

    I'm really sorry to have raised your hopes, but I've just checked, and as unkamunka says, I don't think it's possible. After looking at the help on this subject I noted that they state explicitly what can be done with regard to reorganising the window and nothing mentions even the vaguest possibility of adding/removing columns. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    Sorry again!

    Thanks. It is strange that there can be only four columns but so be it.
