I just started using Thunderbird for Email and I linked it to my Yahoo Mail Account. While looking at my Inbox Listing in Thunderbird, I discovered that the Date Column is showing the Wrong Date for several Emails I received in the Past... For Example the Date in the Date Column is showing 12/11/15 and the Actual Date the Email was received in my Yahoo Account was 01/09/12. Can anyone tell me if Is there a way to set Thunderbird to show the Date in the Date Column of the Inbox as the Date the Email was Actually Received in Yahoo?

right click the column heading and select received as a heading?

Right licking on the heading (the word DATE) only changes the column heading .... I guess my question did not address my problem clearly...let me try again.

Whenever I am looking at the Inbox (my list of incoming email) I see a Date Column and it shows a date for each individual incoming email. The Date in the Date Column is sometimes incorrect. The Date in the Thunderbird Date Column does not show the Date of when the Email was Created and Received into Yahoo. The Date in Thunderbird is showing the Current Date the Email was received into Thunderbird (12/11/15) but I want the Date Column in Thunderbird to show the Date the Email was initially Created and Received into Yahoo (09/15/11). Can someone tell me how to ensure that Date in the Date Column for the Emails received into Thunderbird from my Yahoo account shows up as the Date the Email was initially created and received into my Yahoo account?

No it adds the titles you select to the end of the list of columns.
