IN BOX
« on: August 17, 2012, 09:58:08 PM »
Here is one for all you budding IT CHAPS and Lassies.
every time I receive more than two emails at once, as soon as I hit the go to in box button, it then clicks over and goes to the in box sorting mode and I then have to troll my complete pages to find the new messages and every time i either delete a message or just go back to inbox it goes back to page 1 so off I go again through the pages, can someone tell me how I can stop this and just have a list of new emails on page 1?. ta..

Are you using outlook ?

Expanding on Chav's question, are you using a client email program (e.g. Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird) or are you accessing your emails via your ISP's web site (in Internet Exporer, Firefox, Chrome or whatever your preferred browser is) (this method of accessing your emails I call webmail)?

If you're using a client email program, what is it and what version is it? (Look for a help menu and an About... option within it for version info).

If you're using webmail, what's the first part of the URL in the address bar? (the bit from the http:// or https:// at the beginning up to the next forward slash)?
We are all in this together, but some of us are more in it than others (with apologies to George Orwell)

open your inbox, and try clicking on the heading Received - which shows the date.

Thanks for that PH, i went to my inbox and I have no 'received' icon, but pressed the 'date' one and that sorted the mail by time of arrival so that could be the answer, so many thanks for your help.
regards T. :clap:

Lookout remembers the way you last sorted your email.... so if you accidentally clicked the wrong sort icon (or manage to delete a column from the headers pane) you end up retaining the new setting forever....

I've got that Virgin email.

Last update was truly, truly appalling.

I'm going to sling it into Outlook. If I can remember how.
Sometimes I think you have to march right in and demand your rights, even if you don’t know what your rights are, or who the person is you’re talking to. Then, on the way out, slam the door.
