Currently it is not. It is hardcoded.
If you build from scratch, try something like this:
diff --git a/src/summaryview.c b/src/summaryview.c
index dacbc66..526e504 100644
--- a/src/summaryview.c
+++ b/src/summaryview.c
@@ -3392,7 +3392,7 @@ static inline void summary_set_header(SummaryView *summaryview, gchar *text[],
                                to_text = to_text ? to_text : _("(No From)");
-               snprintf(tmp2, BUFFSIZE-1, "--> %s", to_text);
+               snprintf(tmp2, BUFFSIZE-1, "\342\207\222 %s", to_text);
                text[col_pos[S_COL_FROM]] = tmp2;

As a POC I tried that, and it works (though personally I don't really
see it as a real gain)
