Tip To make a column larger or smaller, drag the arrow that displays when your mouse hovers between two column headings.

Tip You can order the messages by clicking a column heading. The first time that you click a column heading, the records display in ascending order. A small triangle pointing up indicates ascending order. If you click the column heading again, the records display in descending order. A small triangle pointing down indicates descending order. If you click the column heading one more time, the records displays in the unsorted state.
