Sorting Task List so tasks with no due date end up at the bottom

Does anyone know how to make Outlook 2010 sort the task list so that the tasks without a due date sort to the bottom. I want to sort by Due Date Ascending with closest dates at the top. However, when I do that all the tasks with no due date (my least important tasks) end up at the top. I realize this is a pure date sort, but a PIM should allow for this special exception. I can't seem to figure out how to customize the view to get it to work the way I want. Anyone come up with a solution for this?

Hi,

What's the version of your Outlook?

You may sort it by due date descending, the no-due-date tasks will be at the bottom.

Outlook 2010. That's true, but then the tasks with due dates are in the wrong order. I want the tasks with due dates in ascending order, but the tasks without due dates at the bottom.

Assumption: You are like me and typically leave tasks in the 'Not started' status.

1. Mark the task status as 'Deferred'

2. Go to view and sort by 1) Status (ascending), and 2) Due Date (ascending)

Items with no due date appear last.
