I used the Outlook 2007 Conversation feature and liked it. When I first saw the Outlook 2010 Conversation feature I liked it even better as I could Expand to include my own responses. Now that I'm using it, it doesn't do the trick for me. I believe it works more or less per the intent, but I believe it needs some additional help, and it's definitely a bit buggy.
With as many emails as I get, and a lot of long threads included, I need to have all of the conversations "expanded", but not by the 2010 definition of expanded. I need all of the conversations to present like the selected one does. I guess my brain remembers who sent something, and that it's in a recent conversation. That worked well in the 2007 presentation with the items expanded at that level. Now I find it very difficult to find items that are buried in a collapsed conversation. It has become so frustrating that I find myself better off turning off conversation personation and just going with date order, and that's a real bummer. This is a big leap backwards.
Any chance I've missed some setting somewhere, or that there is anything on the development backlog to add some extended features to 2010 Conversation presentations?
