Arranged by: Conversation


I get a reasonable amount of email each day.  Not a lot, about a hundred or two each day (sometimes a lot more).


I don't know why I did it, but a few years ago I tried arranging my email by "Conversation" and I really didn't like it.  I much preferred to have all emails shown in their exact date/time order regardless of conversation.  So, up until about a week ago I hadn't even tried it again.  Over the last week I've been converting almost every single folder over to "Arranged by: Conversation".  I don't know what's happen over the last few years ... but I really like the Conversation view now!  Maybe it's the type of email I get.  Maybe it's because I actually get conversations now! 🙂  


If you just get one off emails, like announcements, then Conversation sorting probably isn't going to help you much.  But if you're on a few interactive mailing lists or distribution lists (DLs) then I think you'll find it an excellent way of sinking back into the context of a conversation when new mail arrives.


I can't believe it took me so long to try this again! 🙂

  1. I think I can help you reach higher numbers since I email our team quite a bit. Either that or you will be bombarded by Messenger toasts. 🙂

    So you’re saying I should add you to my spam list??? 🙂

  3. Heh… possibly… but we are only a paper plane’s throw from each other so I cannot be ignored. MUHAHAHA! 😉
