I recently switched to mu4e for my mails which is awesome. I changed the date format in the headers view so that it became longer. Unfortunately I cannot see the complete date now because the column width is to small. How can I change this? How can I change the width of all columns? Documentation doesn't mention the column width.
mu4e-headers-fields, changing the width corresponding to the
:human-date "header", do the job? (I haven't tested this.)
Documentation on how to change headers can be found here : https://www.djcbsoftware.nl/code/mu/mu4e/Longer-configuration.html
Here is the part the op is interested in :
;; the headers to show in the headers list -- a pair of a field ;; and its width, with `nil' meaning 'unlimited' ;; (better only use that for the last field. ;; These are the defaults: (setq mu4e-headers-fields '( (:date . 25) ;; alternatively, use :human-date (:flags . 6) (:from . 22) (:subject . nil))) ;; alternatively, use :thread-subject
Note that the order of the fields in the code will be the same in the view.
