Sort emails / messages in Windows Mail

In addition to including a full-fledged email search tool, Windows Mail also gives you the ability to sort your emails / messages by virtually any field you can think of. The most common ways of sorting your emails are by "From" (to group together emails from the same sender), by "Subject" (which helps put next to one another all related email messages), by "Received" (to arrange emails from oldest to newest), etc. In this tutorial, we'll show you not only how to sort by any of the common fields, but also how to add more columns by which you can sort your inbox (or any other email folder for that matter).
