E-Mail Sort

E-Mail Sort

I want to be able to sort my e-mails by sender.  In the photo I am including, it shows that some of the e-mails are by sender (note "The..." in the From Column.)  The Column head does not have the little arrow that allows for sorting the e-mail.  Is this because it is not the mail e-mail?  How do I get it to sort?  Thanks for your help.

Re: E-Mail Sort

You are still on the old email format.  Right-click in the gray area to the right of "From", and you will get a menu with your sorting options, like this----------------------

Also, on the toolbar click on "View", and make sure it's set to by Message instead of by Conversation.

Re: E-Mail Sort

I forgot to mention----if you right-click on any message in the list, you will get yet another menu that looks like this-----------------

Keep in mind though, that at some point you will be migrated to the new format.  These menus will be replaced by a much simpler menu with fewer options.

Thank you so much for your solution!!!  I have printed it off and put it in my reference file for future reference.  I am deeply indebted to your specific and concise answer.  The screenshots helped A LOT!!!

Re: E-Mail Sort

I'm glad it worked for you.  But keep in mind that at some point you will be migrated to the new format, and it doesn't look anything like the old one.  So the screen shots will only be a temporary thing.
