Conversation Threading In Outlook

Peter Jelliffe posts on a feature in Outlook that few people use: Its ability to group messages by conversation, a lot like Gmail does. It doesn’t work exactly the same, but it does make Outlook a lot more useful.

Basically, just add the “Conversation” column to Outlook, right-click and select “Group By This Field”, and make sure “Show in Groups” is unchecked. Then, messages are grouped together in your inbox, and new messages that are part of the same conversation are shown together with previous messages.

Of course, to be truly like Gmail, you’d have to have sent messages placed in your inbox along with incoming messages. Also, Outlook is simply grouping messages by the subject, regardless of how many years ago that message was sent, so you could see some weird groupings.
