How to Sort a Mailbox in Windows Mail or Outlook Express

By

"Head" and "toes" may be absolute designations, but whether you prefer something — say, the emails in your Windows Mail or Outlook Express Inbox — to stand on its head or on its toes is a matter of taste.

If Windows Mail or Outlook Express has put the emails that have just come in on top of all others and you'd rather see them at the bottom so that old, undone emails get more attention, you may want to change the order of your Inbox. You could also sort emails by sender, for example, or by subject.

To change the sort order of a folder in Windows Mail or Outlook Express:

  • Click on the heading of the column by which you want to sort.
    • To reverse the order, click on the same column heading again.
    • You can include additional columns not shown by default. Select View | Columns… from the menu and check all desired criteria.
