I have also been plagued with this problem. Messages are grouped by
conversation in Outlook 2003, but there may only be 2 messages in the first
instance of the conversation, and 11 in the next. The two instances are
often quite close together in the message list, but not always.

Hi Neal:
 
I am using outlook express and I do have the Group Messages by Conversation
checked.  What happens though is I have several threads of messages with the
same subject line.  AS I mentioned earlier, (well, maybe I didn't <grin>)
not all mailing lists have this problem.  Freelists seems to be the one that
does the most.
 
thanks very much for your suggestions.

Debbie, if you are using Outlook, I'm not sure about Outlook Express, you
can have your messages read by conversation topic.  In outlook, go to the
view menu, arrow right and read down the list until you get to messages read
by conversation topic.  Press enter.  Now, all the messages with exactly the
same subject will be read to you at one time.  You simply right arrow to
open the list of messages in that topic and arrow through the messages until
you find one you need.  If you want to delete the entire thread, simply
place your cursor on the root of the thread and press Delete.
 
If you're not using Outlook or Outlook Express, I don't think there is a
way.  On the other hand, does this list have an archive folder some place on
the web?  I haven't heard that it does, but if it does, that might also be a
way.

Subject: [bct] Multiple threads , same subject


Hello all:
 
If this question has been asked before I apologize.  Is there a way I can
have all of the messages related to a subject in one thread?  It makes
managing mail somewhat cumbersome.  This only seems to happen with some
mailing lists and not others.  
 
 
Thanks for any ideas.
