Outlook Sort by: Number of Messages in Thread

Occasional Visitor

Hello all. I like many others try to keep my inbox to a manageable level. When receiving several hundred emails a day, even the focused inbox can only help so much. I frequently find myself sorting by @ mentions, importance, and date to keep on top of critical emails. One thing I would like to be able to do is sort by the number of emails in a particular thread. This would allow me to catch email chains that are moving quickly, and give me an opportunity to review to make sure they're moving in the right direction. Currently to achieve this I am scanning the headers for the number in parenthesis, which isn't that elegant of a solution.

 

I am suggesting an additional sort option be added to the column settings, which could be 'Thread Count'. Hopefully I'm not the only one that would use this feature.
