I want to know. Do you love or hate conversation view (threaded email) in Outlook and other email clients? I believe it saves you a lot of time trying to find related emails and make it less likely to respond email that is not the latest. There are a few tricks that you should use to make conversations even better. Let me know in the comments if you love or hate conversation view?
As always, reach out if you have any questions.
Turn on conversations in Outlook
In your inbox, select "View" > "Show as Conversations" to turn on and off
Select "All mailboxes" or "This folder". I suggest all mailboxes.
Manage Your Conversations
Once conversations are turned on, conversations with multiple messages will have a little arrow next to the message. Click the arrow next to the message see all messages within the conversation. The unread messages will be in bold.
Note, you can archive or move all messages in the conversation by acting upon the primary (or latest message) in the thread. Archive or move individual messages, by select each sub-message.
Also note, that by default, when a new message comes in for a conversation, it will appear in your inbox, even if you moved previous messages. You can even still see the other messages under the conversation.
Get Your Options Right
