Lesson 5. Managing Mail > Sorting Mail

Sorting Mail

By default, the Inbox view is sorted by date in ascending order, which means that the older messages are at the top of the view and the newer messages are at the bottom. You can temporarily change the sort order of the documents in a view by clicking on the view column headers. However, not all the columns in the view can be changed. How can you tell whether or not you can sort a view column? The column headers have little triangles on them. For example, in the Inbox view, the Who column header has an up triangle that indicates that this column can be resorted in ascending order (alphabetically, from A–Z). The Date column has a down triangle, which means this column can be resorted in descending order (from most recent to oldest). The Size column has a down triangle, indicating that the messages can be resorted by size, with the largest messages first.

The Inbox does not have any columns that can be sorted both ways—that is, first in ascending order, and then, when you click the column heading again, in descending order. However, you might see that sort option in other views for other databases. If the option to sort both ways is available in a view, there are two triangles in the column heading—one points up and the other points down.
