Re: How to merge the "sent items" folders? - Or search for a sent message?!

View, Layout, Folders pane, check Quick views.
Right click on Quick views, check All sent items....
Note that there are several views dealing with Inbox messages.

Create new folders and move the messages to the new folders.
Do not move the folders.

Why " right " - click ?
Right click won't give you what are in the Sent folder.

There isn't any folder with right click /search.

What is wrong with the Find a message box?

I don't have right click /search, but after looking again, I have right
click /find. It is the find where you can search by date and message
content.
It is not available in Quick views.

Find a message searches From and Subject. It does not search message body.

Click the 'date' column header to sort by date.

That only applies to XP without Windows [Desktop] Search installed,
Ron.
From Help:
<quote>
If you use Windows XP, you can't search the full text in the body of
your e-mail messages unless you have Windows Desktop Search
installed on your computer.

Vista installations should search natively in the message body, and
perhaps someone could tell us whether the same is true of Windows 7.

In my Win 7 installs, the indexing has been excluded for \AppData, under
which the WLM emails reside.
I have searching within eml & nws files working on my x86 install, I think I
just had to add AppData to be searched, and rebuilt the index. I may have
also done the following (I don't recall)...

In my x64 install, that didn't work, as eml & nws files didn't have an
ifilter assigned.
I just did what "pentian" wrote in this thread...
http://www.sevenforums.com/general-...ot-able-index-contents-windows-live-mail.html

....for both .eml and .nws file types.
My index is still rebuilding.
