Arrange Outlook 2010 mail using 2 filters

Firstly, I know that I can group and sort mail using more than one filter. The challenge I have is the following:
1. Group mail by subject
2. Arrange the groups by the amount of mail in each group

Here is the reason in context:
We receive all our SCOM alerts in one mailbox. I want to group the alerts by warning/error type, but I also want the groups with the most warnings/errors in them at the top of the list.

This surely isn't the answer that you want, but I beleive this to be the answer to your question: Outlook doesn't allow sorting/grouping based on message count :(

Thanks. I figured this would be an answer. Outlook won't even give you a message count by selecting a bunch of mail. I will wait and see if I get more answers though.

You might be able to write an add-in or some vba code to count messages of the same subject.  I'm not sure how useful that would be for you though as the results wouldn't display (or I don't know how to make the results display) in the main outlook message list.

Thanks. I guess Microsoft thought that something so simple wouldn't be useful at all.

Respectfully, I disagree.  My first answer would be helpful to others who want to accomplish what you're trying to do.  You asked for a way to sort a sorted group and I gave the correct answer, that there's not a way with built in Outlook functionality.  Furthermore, I made the suggestion that VBA might be able to do counts for you, but that wouldn't display right in the message list.

My Apology. Fair enough. Points awarded.
