    Is there a way to change the way OE downloads messages. They are downloaded alphabetically and I would like to change that to just all in a row as they come in. Not alphabetical. Thanks

    Hi farmgirl

    In Outlook Express, click the header column labeled Received to toggle it back and forth.
    Click it once and your messages will sort as newest to oldest, click it again and they will sort oldest to newest.
    Or vice versa. ;)
    If the column header is large enough to accommodate it, there will be a tiny etched arrow on the header column where the sorting is taking place.

    Let us know if that works for you or not.
