Move an Outlook 2010 Message to a Conversation

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

Is there some way to move an e-mail message that Outlook 2010 has made a new conversation for into another conversation?

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

Not at the moment.

Outlook 2010 recognizes your ‘conversations’ just beacuse of the subject of that email. So if you have people sending emails to you with the subject ‘URGENT’ they all will be linked together as a conversation, even if there’s nothing in common between them.

This also applies to emails with no subject.

Edit: I’ll add that it is not possible if you still want to keep the conversation view.

Method 2

So, would this work?

  1. Add the “edit message” button to your Quick Access Toolbar
  2. Copy the subject line from an email in the conversation thread
  3. Go into the email you want to add to the conversation thread and click on the “edit message” button
  4. Paste the subject line manually into the subject line of the email you want to link

This is not optimum, because it means you have to change the subject line of a message which has been sent to you. Is there a better way of linking an email into an existing conversation thread?

Method 3

MFC Mapi allows you modify the conversation ID so that all relevant emails are included in the same converstaion.

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
