How save emails according to date and time?

I like to save my emails under the name of the person I send them to/receive them from. Unfortunately, they save randomly within the folder. Is it possible to make them save in time and date order irrespective of what is written in the subject line?

If you are using Outlook or Outlook express just click on the heading bar at the top of the list 'from' or 'to' and it will list them in order.

Thanks wiz-king but, unless I'm missing your point, that doesn't solve the problem. I like to save my emails onto a folder on an external hard drive. They always save according to what is written in the subject line. I want them to save according to the time and date.

Open the folder > view > select 'details' then you can click on 'date modified' to sort by date.

Thanks wiz-king. You're a sport.

It works but insists on listing different types of emails in different places. So normal emails are listed first, then 'forwards,' etc. Still it's a great improvement.

To save them in date order just click on the heading "Received" - will be listed from newest to oldest. Another click and they will be listed from oldest to newest. If you click on "From" they will be in alphabetical order of sender etc.

Thanks Sea Urchin but see my second post above.

"They always save according to what is written in the subject line. I want them to save according to the time and date".

Yes, I read your post above - they will be in order of subject line if you click on the subject line heading. I said "click on the date header" and they will be in date order.

Or are you saying that when you write them to the external hard drive they change into a different order? If so that's a different problem.

Whichever header you click on they will be sorted by that column.
