Find all Related Messages: MS Outlook

Dennis Faas's picture

Sometimes we receive e-mail messages referring to some earlier messages that we don't remember and cannot find. That is always perplexing. There is a command in MS Outlook that is often overlooked that can help with this and it's very simple.

Follow the steps below to learn about it:

  • Select a message and click on Actions | Find All | Related Messages.

Outlook will now search for all messages with the same subject line, including all forwarded versions.

This is really a shortcut for using the Advanced Find feature, but with the search criteria already entered for you.

Outlook adds a shortcut for finding related messages to the header area of any message you've replied to or forwarded. To find related messages within a folder, you can also click on the Subject heading to sort by subject and group related messages.
