Applying the same look to all folders

The above instructions modified the folder view you were on (ie: the Inbox).  If you want the same look for all your folders you need to copy these changes to all your other folders.  You can do this by following these steps:

Click the View tab, then click Change View, and from the dropdown choose Apply Current View to Other Mail Folders

On the Apply View dialog box, choose the folders you would like to apply the view to and click ok.  If you want to apply the view to all the folders, make sure the top most folder is chosen (should be your email address), then click the box to Apply view to subfolders and click ok.
