outlook express sorting

Posted on 2006-05-01

I am using outlook express 6. When I click Inbox and click received it sorts by date and the same with from and subject as well. When I click from it sorts ascending or descending according to from address and also sorts by date for each sender.

The same should also apply when I sort the sent items. But when I sort from To address it sorts by To address but doesn't sorts each To address date wise.
kindly advice

    I hope this helps you with your issue - generally speaking there is no 'from' field in the 'sent' items (by default).

    You can add this (and other fields) by right clicking on the title bar (where it says 'subject', 'to' etc) and select 'field chooser' and then add the fields you want.

    The second paragraph was a little bit ambiguous.

    Other than that there is no way to easily search using two different fields (e.g. address and date as you allude to).

    You might try upgrading to MS Outlook or else writing your own Macro in VB Script?
