Outlook: Conversation View

Microsoft Office gives you the option to group emails together by subject line in much the same way as Google Apps. Displaying your emails like this is called conversation view. You can choose to turn on conversation view in one or all of your folders.

To turn on conversation view:

  1. Navigate to the folder for which you want to turn on the conversation view.
  2. Click on the "View" tab.
  3. In the "Conversations" group, check the box next to "Show as Conversations."
  4. Select [This folder] to turn on the conversation view for only the current folder, or choose [All folders] to turn on conversation view for all folders.

To turn off conversation view, in step 3 above, uncheck the box next to "Show as Conversations."
