Bug in Outlook 2010 Conversation View?

Not open for further replies.

Ed in NY

When I change a subject of a received email and save it, the subject shows up properly in the inbox listing with normal views. I can sort the inbox on date, or subject or any other column. The changed subject shows the change that was made.

However, if I change the view to " Conversation View" , then the subject shows the ORIGINAL unchanged subject when sorting by " received date" . Sorting on any other column shows the changed subject correctly.

Hi Ed,

Thank you for this post. This is actually a by design feature.

When a message is sent the subject is copied to a field called Conversation Topic. The Conversation Topic is what is shown when you arrange by Conversation View instead of the subject field.
