    It is looking more and more like I will be relying on Mail for Exchange rather than Outlook. Is their a way I can separate emails by date like Outlook does? Have hundreds of emails not broken up is difficult to read/organize. Maybe a setting I am missing or another App I can download. For clarity, I am not talking of sorting by date rather having the emails in sections by their date received and broken up a bit more.

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Workaround

    Well, I was hoping that someone smarter would have an answer for you before I sent you my lame suggestion for a possible work-around.

    If this is something you really can't live without, you could rig your computer to mail yourself an e-mail at 12:01 am with a subject of:

    ---Thursday, December 2, 2010 --------------------------------------------

    With the subject changing for the current date.

    You could even create a rule that mail coming from that account that includes "---" in the subject line gets a certain highlight to really make the day breaks stand out.

    Of course, if you sort your e-mails so that the most recent floats to the top, then you'll have to change it up to send you the date that just ended in the subject line.

    :)
