    Sort Read/Unread in Outlook 2000 SP3 (2000 sp3)

    I am sure someone has answered this before but I could not find anything. Is there a way to sort unread/read emails in Outlook 2000 SP3.

    I went to the field chooser and chose the "read" field...only to find out that it cannot sort by that field....seems like a useless field to me.

    I even tried to create my own field....

    1) Clicked New
    2) Name " Read Status ", Type "Formula", Formula "IIF( <img src=/S/read.gif border=0 alt=read width=19 height=33>,1,2)"

    This actually worked.....my read emails were "1", my unread emails were "2" so I figured I could sort.....but again when I clicked on the field....it told me that the field was unsortable.

    Any other ideas?

    As you have found, you cannot sort by read/unread.

    You can create a view that displays only read messages, and another view that displays only unread messages. Switching between views takes only a few clicks.

    (In Outlook 2003 you can create a Search Folder that displays unread mail from all folders, but that feature is not available in earlier versions of Outlook)

    And just another reason to upgrade to Outlook 2007. you can do a search for read and unread e-mails
