I hate having to read my developed forwarded/replied emails in reverse order.  I want to read the originating message first then read the developing discussions.

Is there a way to reset Outlook to reorder messages from oldest to newest...top to bottom?

There ya go..fire away.  Eric

If yo9u are talking about the way that an email message appears - with the first email at the bottom and subsequent messages topped over it as you would get a Big Mac, sorry it aint possible.

One could write a script to parse apart an email, but you would have to deal with all of the possible mail header breaks from various email systems. Using Ctrl-End to get to the bottom and then scrolling upward isn't too painful once you get used to it.

Hi B1DUDE,

Group the messages by Conversation then sort by Date Received.  This will keep a conversation together in descending date received sequence.  To do this either create a new view or right-click the column header area in the right-hand pane and select Customize Current View.  Click Group By and select Conversation.  Next, click Sort and select Received.

Cheers!
