- Outlook email defaults to "Conversation" view which groups all related messages sharing the same subject line together. While some users find this feature convenient, others find it difficult to locate and respond to certain emails quickly as it collapses the content within a conversation thread. As a result, some students and faculty have missed important emails related to class content and exams. Users have the option to change this view setting if they wish. Please check out Office 365 (Web) – Disable Conversation View in Outlook .
