How do I change between list and conversation view?

In Posteo webmail, you have the ability to display emails in a long list or to sort them by conversation. This help article explains how to change between list and conversation view.

Activating conversation view

The view settings can be changed using two buttons in the menu between the list of emails and the message preview.

Incorporating replies

Conversation view only encompasses emails that you have received. If you would like the webmail interface to show your replies as part of a conversation, you need to specify this in the settings. Proceed as follows:

  1. Open Settings in the webmail interface
  2. Click Preferences
  3. Click the menu item “Composing messages”
  4. Place a tick next to “Place replies in the folder of the message being replied to”
  5. Confirm by clicking Save

Reverting to list view

If you no longer wish to use conversation view, you can deactivate it. To do this, click the square list-symbol to the left of the speech bubbles.
