View Email Messages by Conversation in Outlook:

On the View tab, in the Conversations group, select the Show as Conversations check box, then click All Folders or This folder. Note: This feature works only if emails are sorted by date received. Otherwise, the Conversations group is grayed out.

Remove Word Formatting:

Microsoft Word is great for writing and formatting text. But sometimes you want to copy that text into another program (an email, your website) without including the formatting (i.e. font size, color, margins). The easiest way to do this is to open up Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac) and paste your text in a new document. Next, copy your text from the new document. When you paste it again, the formatting will be removed.
