Conversation View

    I just received the communication below. I don't know what 'Conversation
    View' is but I am copying it here in the hope it might be helpful.

    Comments welcome.
    --------
    M$ believe that a sizable minority of people want this feature (which
    basically shows the whole thread of a conversation rather than the current
    message) and have decided to follow Google's example with G-Mail, and now
    provide 'Conversation View'. A lot of people didn't like the fact that it
    is the only view offered by G-Mail and cannot be turned off.

    Micro$oft decided to take a different approach. Their revamped Hot Mail /
    Windows Live comes with 'Conversation View' turned off. Those of you using
    Windows Live will have noticed that the Windows Live user interface appeared
    in a modified form yesterday. Somewhere on the screen, there is a menu item
    marked 'Conversation View': don't click on this tab.

    Micro$oft are currently showing advertisements to Windows Live users,
    inviting them to try their new 'Conversation View'. M$ are not warning
    users that once turned on, this feature cannot be turned off.

    Unless you know what 'Conversation View' is, and are sure you want it, do
    NOT turn on 'Conversation View'.

    Certainly in the latest build of the Beta you CAN turn Conversation view
    off.
    AFAIK you could ALWAYS do that...

    You can and you were always able to turn this feature OFF if so desired. Even in
    every Beta and in every release including the latest

    Mozilla Thunderbird has a 'conversation' view like thing
    called 'Threaded View', but it seems unreliable (for me
    anyway).

    The problem is people using different e-mails clients that
    don't always create/read the same headers that the next one
    does, and the actual content of the e-mail means nothing.

    And to add.....I just looked at it again in T-Bird, and while
    'threaded view' may seem nice, one thing is that it only
    'threads' the 'Inbox' and doesn't include the mail you *send* in
    the threaded view.

    ......so, in T-Bird at least, what could be called a
    'conversation view' is not.

    Conversation view is another name for threaded view.

    I can't find out where to turn it off in gmail's webmail, but I use
    Thunderbird (version 2 - but that's another story) to read my gmail and I
    turn threading/conversation off there.

    Thanks Gene. I don't use either but thought it interesting enough to ask.
