Disable grouping by Today, Yesterday, Week etc…

All my messages are automatically grouped by Today, Yesterday, Monday, Tuesday, Last Week, 2 Weeks Ago, Last Month, etc…

How can I set Outlook to show all my mail as a plain list without this grouping?

This view setting can be changed in the following way;

  • Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007
    View-> Arrange By-> disable: Show in Groups
  • Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013
    tab View-> expand the Arrangement box via the Expand Ribbon Gallery button-> disable: Show in Groups

Show in Groups
Expand the View Arrangement Gallery to see the “Show in Groups” option.

Disable it via View Settings dialog

An alternative way to disable this option is via the View Settings dialog

  • Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007
    View-> Arrange By-> Custom-> button Other Settings…-> disable option: Show items in Groups
  • Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013
