Outlook 2003 age-based dynamically collapsable inbox

Yeah, I have no idea what to actually call it, so "Age-based dynamically collapsable inbox" sounded pretty good.

In Outlook 2003, if you have your inbox arranged by date, there are automatticaly subcattegories like "Today", "Yesterday", "Last Week", "Two Weeks Ago", and "Older".  You can collapse said items for easier viewing.  My problem is, when I come back the next day they are all expanded again.  I'm assuming that this is because the content of the group changed at midnight (Todays messages were moved to Yesterday and so on), causing them to automatically expand.

I want to stop it from expanding.  Can anyone help?

Good question...

The only thing I see is under View>Expand/Collapse Groups>Collapse All Groups.

I'll keep playing....

You can turn off the "Show in Groups" option and use it flat like in OL2K.

Alright, I think I've got it (at least it seems to work for me).

While in the Inbox, right-click the header bar (where Subject, etc is shown)
Select Customize Current View
Select the Group By... button.
In the lower right corner is a drop-down menu, select All Collapsed.
Click OK, then OK again.

Advise.

Hmmm, I would guess that now they might all be collapsed when I return in a few hours.  However, that would be better than them all being expanded.  I'll check tomorrow and update this question accordingly.  Thanks.
