To group messages and their replies

When many people participate in e-mail and newsgroup conversations, the replies to a given message can be hard to track. You can set up Outlook Express so that message replies are grouped under the original message. You can then choose to view only the original message, or the message and all its replies.

When you are in either your Inbox or a newsgroup, on the View menu, point to Current View, and then select Group Messages by Conversation.

To display expanded conversations for all messages, on the Tools menu, click Options, click the Read tab, and then select Automatically expand grouped messages.

To display the original message and all replies to it, double-click the plus sign ( + ) to the left of the original message. To display only the original message, double-click the minus sign (  ) next to the message.
Conversations are grouped according to the title of the original message. For example, if the message that starts a conversation is titled "Ideas for using Outlook Express," all replies to that message will be titled "RE: Ideas for using Outlook Express."
