A very quick and short tip on how you can easily sort your email by date.

Click on Group By Date, so that it’s selected (checked) like in the screenshot above.

Your emails in the folder you are in right now will be sorted and grouped by date:

As you can see I have 16 emails from today, 11 from yesterday, 25 from the rest of the week and so on.

To see the emails under any of the groupings, just click on the twistie:

This is very useful and nice tool to find emails from a specific date or time period. Or to keep track on what you have received today and yesterday.
