Unread messages

Not open for further replies.


I would like the unread messages to remain at the top of my inbox. I do not like the "unread messages" link since it pulls the unread messages in my other folders. Older versions of outlook allowed this type of sort but I cannot seem to find it in "07". Help? Suggestions?

The Inbox will display messages in the order in which they were received. Thus, if you have some unread messages, then some read messages, then some more unread messages, the unread ones will not be grouped together; they'll be separated by the read ones that came after the first group but before the second.

If you don't want to see unread messages in folders other than Inbox in the Unread Messages search folder, modify it so it includes only your Inbox. Right-click and customize it.
