Thanks for the post. I really just need to use outlook (but would consider another emai client if better) to be able to sort and find emails - i get a lot of them.  I want to be able to see threads of conversations, and also sort by sender or subject and use date ranges.  I have seen neo and clear context but neither one really does it the way I like.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Rick.

Native Outlook (i.e. no add-ins or utilities) does all of the things you listed.  It can sort messages by any field (including sender, subject, dates, conversation), find messages in a variety of ways, and build a conversation thread.  The question is does it do these things the way you need/want it to.  Can you give me an example of something specific you'd like to do and how you'd like it to work?

Thanks, BlueDevilFan, Perhaps I need to look harder at what I can do with native outlook. I will award points but could you tell me where to look to find out how to build the conversations threads? I did not know you could do that.  also, is there a particular reference you could recommend for me to learn? thanks,
rick
