    Sorting messages (OE 5.5)

    I am using OE 5.5 on a Win98 PC. If I sort my Inbox according to sender, all one person's messages appear together but in random date order. Can I get a second sort, date order, within each separate sender's listing?

    I'm using Outlook, so this is a guess:
    Right_mouse over the columns and choose Customize Current View
    Select Sort
    You can then select the order of columns to sort by.

    Just as a matter of interest, what would be the 'second' default sort order? I find it hard to believe it would be totally random.

    On doing something like this before, I have often found that if you sort by date order, then immediately afterwards by the order you want, the program only bothers to change the order by as much as it needs to for the second sort - with the result that the date order is maintained almost by accident.

    I don't know if it would work this time, but it might be worth a try! <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Thank you. Yes, this does seem to work, particularly if you click on the date order two or three times first, ascending, descending, ascending again. Then clicking on the From column has the desired result.
