In Outlook Express v6 WinXP a few of my emails have a little box with either a "x" or a "-" to the left side of some emails.
Looking in Outlook Express Help the follwing is suppose to explain what they mean.

Can someone explain how these little + & - boxes get there what causes them to apear, am I sending or doing something wrong. its bugging me as some of these emails expand in like a Tree subfolder againt them missing some important ones also.

+ The message has responses that are Collapsed.

- The message and all of its responses are
expanded. Click the icon to hide all the
responses (collapse the conversation).

They are `threads`, emails sent and returned relating to one subject - it helps to keep them `tidy`
