How can I make evolution display every folder the same way, with the same columns and -widths and no preview field?

You can't do it automatically, but what you can do is the following :

  • set your view to your liking in your inbox
  • click Views > Current view > Save custom view
  • give your custom view a name and save
  • click on another folder and go to View > Current view > your custom view

You have to do this for all the folders you want your custom view applied.

PS: I hope the translation is correct, my system is in French.

My system is German, so I cannot confirm the translation :) – Martin Ueding Apr 18 '11 at 16:39
