Search in Outlook 2003 results are randomly generated.

Is there a way to get Outlook 2003 to return results of a search the most recent first?  After completing the search they are ordered however we want, but the initial returns seem random.  Is there a way to keep whatever index Outlook uses updated so it returns new ones first?

Greetings, answerware !

No, there is no way natively to seach and show results in any special order.  Of course, you can change order clicking on the column heading. For example, if you want to sort by date, click on the Date at the top of the Date column.

Best wishes!

Are you using the build in search function or an add on like LookOut?  If you are using the built in search then it would normally default by date, meaning most recent.  If not you can change it two ways.  Right click the top header then it should give a drop down of ways to arrange your information.  Another way is to go to the top and select "View ---> Arrange by ---> Date"  This will sort it by date.

As war1 mentioned there is not way of changing the order natively but mine and other users here by default sort it by date automatically.  I wonder.

I know exactly what you mean...  For me, it seems like it digs up the *oldest* messages first, which I think is dumb.

I have slightly better luck using the "advanced find."  Might be worth a try, see if you like it better.

None of these solutions helped with my issue.  I am still looking for help resolving this, I suppose it just isn't programmed this way and that is the answer.

answerware,

As I said in my post, http:#16347049 , you cannot have search show in a special order.
