Stop compacting?

  Linda55 18:28 07 May 2008

Since compacting my emails new emails arrive and are attached to old ones - usually with the same subject heading, sometimes from the same person but not always the latest one from them. For instance an email entitled wedding was attached under another also entitled wedding but from two years ago. The only way I can make sure I see all new ones is to select view "hide unread messages". This is OK except after I have read them I cannot find them again.
How do I get them to just appear in date order?

Click the date column heading.

That doesn't work. New emails are attached to earlier ones and they stay in that order.

You could try deleting you inbox it will make another new one automatically but it will delete all mail in the inbox,

You can create a new Inbox folder using the following steps:
1. Exit Outlook Express.
2. Search your hard drive for Inbox.dbx and delete this file.
3. Restart Outlook Express. A new empty Inbox folder is created automatically.

It works with outbox etc
