Gather Related Outlook Email For Easy Reading


Q. I get many e-mails that are continuing “conversations”—that is, I send an e-mail to a colleague, she sends me a response with a copy to three other people, who then respond with copies to everyone. After a while, the number of related e-mails can grow to a dozen or more and keeping track of them can be very hard. Any suggestions?

A. Outlook has an elegent solution to the problem. As long as the messages share the same Subject , gathering them together for easier viewing is a snap.

Open your Inbox and click on any of the messages in the thread. Then select View, Current View, By Conversation Topic . In the screenshot below, the three e-mails share the same Subject (Re: letter), and by clicking on the plus (+) sign on the left side of the screen, the entire thread now will be grouped under one header.
