At this time, you cannot sort by 'From', but you can type in 'From' in the search field.

Re: sorting my email

I know this is probably a rhetorical question, but why do people insist on leaving hundreds of emails in their inbox, making it a pain to search for a particular one?  Wouldn't it be soooo much easier to create folders and store emails by author, subject, etc?

Re: sorting my email

I agree with you.

Re: sorting my email

I agree . . . I can't find this function as well. I want to go back and delete all the mails I have from one sender and need to sort / group the "from" so I can check off all the mails from that sender or even batch transfer them to a newly created folder.

This new mail does not have the same friendly functionality as the old one.

The bug that prevents the sort by "From" in regular SZ will be fixed in a future release.   SZ Lite allows such a sort.

 

In addition, did you read charvey's post higher in this thread?  

 

Looking in my Inbox, I have 3 e-mails I copied myself on and the "From" field says "JR".   If I go up to the search box, and type from: JR, then my message listing changes to show only the 3 e-mails from JR.   I can click the check box at the left of the column heading to check all three individual messages and then perform whatever function I want on that group (move to another folder, mark as spam, delete, mark as unread, etc).

Re: sorting my email

That works for "from JR" but what if you have a thread to 50 people? Which I often do. I want to clean up my email as I have over 4000 in the box and I find it very tedious scrolling through screen by screen to pull out the ones I want to keep. My husband has an older version and he can sort "From" Please fix this bug
