        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.

        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

        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.

        I gave this the maximum THREE votes. Nothing disrupts the trail as when my view is missing what I've already responded to. Worse is when I reply because I don't recall that I already addressed a question and it looks like I'm being super-sarcastic. :(

        This is a very important feature as the use of conversations is greatly reduced when only one side of a conversation is visible.

        Please also include the ability to drag those sent messages (as part of a conversation thread) into an archive file

      • Adam Watson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        In Windows outlook you may click a little arrow to view all the messages in a conversation including your own. This means the messages aren't always there but can be viewed easily.

        This is sadly missing in the Mac version.
