    Outlook 2003 Find Feature searches backwards

    Howdy all,

    A unique issue that I never saw as a problem until someone complained about it. All of our users are on basic Outlook 2003 installs.

    When we search through our emails (not an advanced search, just a simple Find search), the search starts by displaying the oldest emails first, and then moves it's way up to the newest emails. Ideally, it's not a problem, but I got some users with inboxes of 3000+ emails, and it can take awhile depending on what you search for.

    Is there any way to reverse this? It's not a terrible inconvenience, but really I'm just curious if such a thing can be done to fix it.

    Thanks for any and all help you provide.

    Good heavens, what on earth are they doing with so many emails still in their boxes. Don't they ever archive them, obviously not. Haven't come across this as an issue, but will have a root and see if I can find anything.
