I tried the hold the <SHIFT> then hit the headers, but sort by date is still semi mixed..

Temp work around from Microsoft = Go to View - Current View - Customize Current View - Reset the current view, OK, OK,
close and Reopen Outlook
Go to View - Current View - Customize Current View - Filter - More Choices tab - check
only items with one or more attachments.

Per Microsoft, this is a known issue with Outlook 2007 on Server 2007 and they are working on it..

Hi, Gershowit.

Sorry, but I'm not seeing the problem.  The items in the two screen shots all have attachments and they appear to be in date sequence.  My eyes are bad.  I must be missing it.

Here is a shot of the received column, AFTER I already sorted by attachment, then hitting shift while clicking the received header, it sorts the first 17, from 2/072009 down to 9/05/2008, then resorts starting at 2/09/2009....

My guess is that if you open the item in the screen shot with the date "Mon 2/9/2009 9:01 AM" you'll find that it has an embeded image.  You can determine that by viewing the item source (assuming it's in HTML format) and searching for and viewing the IMG tags.  If any of them begin with CID: then it's an embeded image.  An embeded image is an attachment, but not one that shows up in the list of attachments.  In other words, it's hidden.  Apparently when sorting the attachment column Outlook can tell the difference between a file attachment and an embeded attachment and sort the items into three groups (attachments, hidden attachments, and no attachments).
