        This is currently a showstopper for me. Will keep using the 365 browser interface until this can be fixed.

        The way it is now is that I cannot see my replies to a conversation. Defeats the whole purpose of conversation view

      • Eyal Peleg commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        How about having whatsapp showling only one side of the conversation too?? would it make sense to call it a conversation??

        It's really not, but t is very annoying and a clear sign that MS aren't listening to the userbase.

        So??? it's under review from April 2017 ???
        Are you joking? 20 years of MS office and you still didn't learn anything...

        Because of this missing feature I've had to connect my exchange account to Apple Mail when I want to see the whole conversation properly in context. Mr Stansfield said it best, 'That's literally NOT a conversation.'

      • Curtis Tasker commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The only way to survive my day to day without this feature is to BCC myself on every email I send, and set up an email rule to mark these items as read; It really does need to be fixed.

        Surprising that some of the functionality being introduced to Office is of dubious use but this, which is a massive boost isn't present.

      • James King commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I don't know how else to express how critical this functionality is to me. Conversation threads don't make any sense without seeing your own replies in order.

        As mentioned in other comments - would like to see all emails from a conversation in the emails tree, just like on Windows Outlook when you enable "Show messages from other folders".
        This will be a huge productivity boost.

        also would be great to use chat like look for conversation as they look on OWA

      • Mark commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        and including emails in other folders (including Sent and deleted) into the conversation like you can in the windows version (this is a configurable option). This is so important, especially when you have moved previous messages out of the inbox and a new message arrives.

        Having originated this question, I eventually asked my local tech experts for help. They informed me that, unlike gMail which provides a solution, Microsoft Office for the Mac does not. Evidently there is no convenient work-around. Thanks to everyone who expressed an interest.
