This is a little off-topic but I think this may be useful for a couple of you out there. I’m using Outlook 2010 to manage my mails, calender and tasks. One thing that I really like about Office 2010 is the conversation-sort-feature you can use with e-mails. It lets you keep track of conversations across the folders of your mailbox - no matter where you stored the e-mails.
An annoying behavior however is, that once you click on an e-mail conversation, it opens an overview of e-mails of the conversation - but not all of them. It appears that it would notice that notices that parts of the conversation is kept in the message body of other messages. Mails that are referenced inÂ other messages (by just hitting “Reply” and not clearing the whole original mail body), don’t show up immediately:
Once you click the “Split conversation. Latest message shown.”-label, it would open all messages in the conversation.
If I think that this is kind of annoying, too, this might help: I searched for a solution and found it when clicking on the “Arrange By: Conversation” header above the mail message list. There’s an option for it: “Always expand conversations” :-)
