Windows Desktop Search: Sort results by multiple columns

I need a solution to this annoyance with Windows Desktop Search: "How do I sort the search results by multiple columns?"

For example:
     Let's say I want to find an email from Jeff that was sent sometime in January, but I can't remember the title of the email. If I sort the search results by "From", I'll find all of Jeff's emails together, but the "received" date's on those emails are not sorted. So, I'd naturally want to sort the results by "From" AND "Received", but Windows Desktop Search will not do that. Currently, I'm only allowed to sort by one column at a time. Ultimately, I'll want to sort the results by these three fields: "From", "Received", and "Title".  

Is this possible? Is there some add-in I need to download or create?  Let me know.

Thanks!

At the moment, it is not possible. You cannot sort the results by multiple columns. Only by one column as you are already aware.
You may find some use of the Advanced Query Syntax and Advanced Search Techniques pdf files attached.
You also might want to keep and eye on the Add-In Site for Microsoft Search 4, who knows, a new add-on may become available any day:
