    Threading email (Outlook Express 5.5)

    How can I get OE to thread messages - as they are here?
    'View by conversation' doesn't include my replies to incoming mail unless I explcitly CC each message to myself. Is there a way of automating this?

    I agree with MJ - cc yourself in.

    If it's too much hassle to remember, you could write yourself a rule that says whenever an email is sent to [whoever], send a copy to [yourself]. You could even do it for every email you send, if you wanted.

    Tried that. The Rules wizard won't let me copy a message from myself to the Inbox. Ho hum. My other mail program has an option to cc everything to myself, but I don't think OE can do this. It would save so much bandwidth if it did, especially with people who always recursively quote the received message in their reply.
