Outlook contains many customization options when it comes to viewing your email and calendar. Some of these options include whether or not an email preview is shown, if the Reading Pane is on the right, bottom, or off, and whether the To-Do bar is shown. All of these settings can be changed by clicking on the View tab.
Additionally, you may notice that when you first log into Outlook, your messages are shown as Conversations. This means that any time there is any action taken on an email, such as forwarding or replying, all communications will be contained within the same Conversation list.
How to remove Conversation View:
- Click on the drop-down arrow next to By Date.
- Deselect Show as Conversations.
Note: From this menu, you can also select how emails are sorted. Whether it’s by Date, From, or by Category, for example.
