Too bad Apple hasn’t figured out how to restore the column headers in the Catalina Mail program. I still can’t say what columns I want to see nor can I adjust the column widths. Why would Apple think people don’t want to these capabilities in list view in the Mail program. I’ve yet to see Apple explain this decision. John Martellaro’s “Postflight” suggestion telling users what changed in updates is very appropriate. Just telling the user there are “bug fixes and performance enhancements” is insufficient and generally meaningless.
