I want to add a button to my toolbar to do Find Related messages. It is possible to get this by adding the button in Outlook 2002 and then upgrading. However now I have a new Windows profile.  Is there a way to add it from the menus in Outlook 2003 or must I use a macro ?

Hi wpyung,
I guess I would first ask why you need to do that, when the funtionality is available by simply opening the email in question, or by giving a right mouse click to find related

This speeds up my filing.

If say I have 1000 messages in my inbox , with related messages in the Sent items, which needed filing into correct folders and I wish to find messages and replies etc by converstion, it is easier to have a single click button.

Then I can drag the results to the required folder.

This worked great under Outlook 2000 and 2002 but it's dissappeared from the Commands section of the customization tool.
I can do it with 2 clicks using the right click as you suggest or by adding the Find menu item to the toolbar.

Its just a small thing but annoying...

Look at Tools-Customize-Toolbars.  Add and remove as many buttons as you want.

But only if the command you want is in shown under commands.
Find related messsages does not appear as a command under Outlook 2003 under Tools-Customize-Commands in any category ...

Use rules to move them when they are received.  It sounds like that may be a good workaround for this.
