V simple OE prob....I hope!!

Hi all, I think this should be v. simple but I just can't put my finger on the answer!! For a reason I don't know my e-mails have changed their order from "order they were recieved" (ie by date) to alphabetical. How do I get them back to date order?

In OE go to the inbox and right click on the Received tab. Tick the Ascending or Descending option

you are using Outlook Express, click on the heading where it says "Received"

The emails will now be sorted by this column. Click it agin and they will still be sorted by that column, but the other way round, i.e. earliest at the top or latest at the top.

Clicking on any of the headings will sort by that column, alphabetically or numerically as appropriate.

This technique is used in most windows progs!

Good luck,
