Outlook 2013 Threaded View in Preview Pane

Recommended Posts

SMELTN    142

So our company is converting over to Office 365 and we are using Outlook 2013 as our mail client. We can access email by either using the Outlook 2013 application on the PC or by going to a website and using the Outlook Web app. 

 

I use a reading pane on the right hand side of the screen. When I go to the web app, I can see a threaded view of the conversations, just like with Gmail, or other mail applications. 

 

With the desktop version though, the only threaded view (conversation view) I see is for the actual email column. NOT for the reading/preview pane.  

 

Does anyone know how I can get this feature in the office 2013 desktop client?

We have the same setup at work.  I hope this is what you are looking for:

 

1. Go to the view tab in Outlook 13

2. Make sure 'show as conversations' is checked

3. From the 'conversations settings' pull-down menu choose:

3a. 'show messages from other folders'

3b. 'show senders above the subject'

4. In the view tab use the 'message preview' pull-down menu and choose:

4a: 1, 2, or 3 lines of the email to show (I have 2 lines being shown)

nah that wasn't it. That only affects the left email pane. I am trying to do this in the preview/reading pane on the right
