Insert File dialogue display files out of order

I am running Outlook 2000 on a client machine with Exchange 2003 on the server.  When inserting a file in a message the browsed documents are out of order.  It is not a reversed order but rather a seemingly random order.  I had expected this was a problem with the "Arrange Icons by" setting on the My computer View menu.  However, the setting is set to "Name" and there is not a problem when viewing files in My Computer. The other Outlook clients on the network are not experiencing this problem.

How can ensure that Insert File dialogue in Outlook displays files in the desired Name order?

In the Insert File dialog - you can change the sort order using the "Views" button (the button with a blue line and tiny little icons just to the right of the yellow new folder icon).  

Click the small triangle arrow on the right of the button and you can change the icon type and "Arrange By" (sort order).

Once you change this - either intentionally or accidentally - it remembers the setting even when you close and reopen Outlook.

I tried that already, sort by details.  The dialog shows the files in groups by type.  I just want a full folder listing alphabetically.  Not grouped by Adobe files, then excel files, then word files, etc.
Thanks
