How can I make Windows Mail sort my emails by the date they were received?

lynette henderson September 8, 2011

It’s driving me nuts. Somehow or other I have accidentally changed the order of displayed email. It was accidental. It originally displayed emails received in the most recent order. That was great. Then suddenly it is alphabetical subject order. Please help me to change this. Thank you.

    In your mail click view, sort by and mark received.  Just did it and it worked... : )

    Sort messages by any of the standard columns (fields) in Windows Mail

    There should be a column to sort by Date; click on it once to see if it sorts them by most recent date received, and if not, click once again.
