It may be possible to streamline Appendix A, Scan Line Formats. According to Michael, mh-scan-format-nmh is the only variable you have to adjust.

Does this help? This is all I've got in there besides the font and key
bindings...

;mh-e scan format
(setq mh-scan-format-nmh
(concat
"%4(msg)" ; message number
"%<(cur)+%| %>" ; + on current message
"%<{replied}-" ; replied mark
"%?(nonnull(comp{to}))%<(mymbox{to})\*%>" ; * if to
"%?(nonnull(comp{cc}))%<(mymbox{cc})c%>" ; c if cc
"%?(nonnull(comp{bcc}))%<(mymbox{bcc})b%>" ; b if bcc
"%?(nonnull(comp{newsgroups}))n%>" ; n if newsgroup
"%<(zero) %>" ;
"%6(size) " ; size in bytes
"%<(mymbox{from})%<{to}To:%14(decode(friendly{to}))%>%>" ; name of sender
"%<(zero)%20(decode(friendly{from}))%> " ; name of sender
"%(month{date}) %(mday{date})%<{date} %|*%>" ; date
"%(decode{subject})" ; subject
)
)

Bill,

I was trying to get an old scan format to work with a new (6.1, actually
old to everybody else) MH-E. I had gotten it to work, beautifully, and
you were interested in my settings. The only thing still awful about my
email is all the spam!

Michael

Yes, all I did was modify that---it was so simple that I couldn't
believe it!
