I do like conversations view in the new outlook 2010, but inability to keep all conversations expanded makes me waste some time to select and expand a conversation for reading or replying.

Is there a way to keep all conversations expanded, can it be configured in the " view" or in registry?

I got accustomed to have my messages organized by conversation, in thread-view, and be able to expand all conversations... in Outlook 2003 that is:

1) group by conversation

2) sort by conversation index

3) right-click on any conversation head -> expand all

We just upgraded to Outlook 2010 and I have to agree with you that there seems to be no way of doing this in OL2010; having "Show as conversations" ticked prevents 3)expand all, and having not ticked somehow prevent the 1) and 2) combination to work (Outlook doesn't apply the setting, it just reverts to Sort by Received (descending). I keep trying but OL doesn't cooperate.

I find it hard to believe that a view which worked perfectly fine in OL2K3 cannot be reproduced in 2010? Any help/insight on this would be really appreciated.
