E-mailfiling system

By bigedwiebe ·
It appears that my filing system is not in alphabetic order so when I want to file an e-mail message for future ref It takes me a long time to find the file. Is here some way to put the files in proper sequence.

By filing, do you mean archiving an email in the Archive folder of Outlook 2003, or just saving the email as a file in a folder in the file system of Windows XP?

In either case, if you click the heading of a column like Sent, Received, Subject, Sender in Outlook or Date Modified in Windows Explorer, the items in the folder get sorted in ascending or descending order, depending on the number of times you click the heading.

You can use any good indexing software. Some of them are Google Desktop Search, Yahoo Desktop Search, Coppernic Desktop Search etc.

I would suggest you checkout the free tool known as "Lookout" It allows you to search for items in Outlook as well as any other folders you identify. It can also look through the contents of the document/email if you wish.
