Hi, in outlook 2003 I would like to group my messages by Date without Outlook's predefined grouping.  for example, I'm able to sort my Inbox by Date using View->Arrange By->Date.  i get this:

[-] Today
[+] Yesterday
[+] Last Week... etc

However, if I want to create a folder view that specifically shows messages one day at a time.  like this:

[-] June 23
[+] June 22
[+] June 21...etc

[+] Monday June 23, 2008 11:10 AM
[+] Monday June 23, 2008 10:16 AM ... etc
