This topic explains how to customize the various management interfaces in Exchange 2007. These various interfaces are configurable in that you can show or hide items in the console window, and you can add columns to or remove columns from in the result panes or work panes.
The management interfaces that you can customize depend on which version of Exchange 2007 you are running. In Exchange 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you can use these procedures to customize the Exchange Management Console, the Queue Viewer, the Details Templates Editor, and the Public Folder Management Console. In the release to manufacturing (RTM) version of Exchange 2007, you can use these procedures only to customize the Exchange Management Console
To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:
Exchange View-Only Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

In the management interface, select an item in either the result pane or the work pane.

To add columns to your current view, select the column name in the Available columns box and click Add.
To remove columns from your current view, select the column name from the Displayed columns box and click Remove.
To change the position in which the columns display, select a column name from the Displayed columns box, and then click the Move Up or Move Down button.
Click OK to apply your changes and close the dialog box.
In the action pane, click View, and then select Customize. Or on the menu bar, select View, and then select Customize.
