After arranging the items in your message list, you can change the sort order of the
arrangement by clicking the sort order indicator that appears to the right of the message
Two options that affect the way messages appear within an arrangement are conversations
and grouping. Grouping, which is turned on by default, gathers messages that it within
specific arrangement categories under arrangement-specific headings so that you can
manage common messages as one. For example, when messages are arranged by date,
they are grouped by date: groups include each day of the current week, Last Week, Two
Weeks Ago, Three Weeks Ago, Last Month, and Older. Each group has a header. You can
expand or collapse an individual group by clicking the arrow to the left of the group name
in the header. You can collapse the group containing the currently selected item by pressing
the Left Arrow key, and you can expand a selected group by pressing the Right Arrow key.
You can expand or collapse all groups by choosing a command from the Expand/Collapse
list in the Arrangement group on the View tab.
Regardless of the view and arrangement you choose, you can sort messages by any
visible column simply by clicking its column heading (and reverse the sort order by clicking
the column heading a second time). You can change the displayed columns from the
Show Columns dialog box, which you display by clicking the Add Columns button in
the Arrangement group on the View tab.
You can control the information shown in the message list and display
up to 20 lines of a message in Compact view.
