If you ask me, one of the greatest innovations that Google has brought to email is the conversation view. It’s not hard to see that many agree and even Microsoft included it in Outlook 2010. But, none-the-less there are some people who get their mojo disrupted if they can’t see copious separate emails on their page.
By default, conversation view is enabled for all Gmail accounts. Conversation view organizes related emails that share the same subject and time-range into groups. These groups of emails become threaded so that you can easily see the history of the conversation, if you were wondering what inspired Google Wave… this was it!
Anyhow, once conversation view is disabled your emails will go back to the plain-jane confusing format that everyone was used to in 1998. But – that might be what you like or need. For example, when a someone leaves a comment on a groovyPost I get an email immediately, and Gmail tends to group them a little weird so conversation view off actually makes it easier to read them. It’s really simple to change, let’s look at it.
How To Turn Off Conversation Grouped Emails In Gmail
In Gmail, Click the Settings button to go to the settings page. You should automatically be on the General tab. There Scroll down to Conversation View and Select Conversation View off.
Now conversation view should be off! That only took one simple step, groovy eh?
