sort sent items

Using windows 7 and windows live mail. Seems I am unable to sort sent items as needed. Is there a way to sort them by name or a way to change the existing method?

1. Procedures vary between WLM 2009 version and 2011 version.
Which one do you have ?

2. State precisely how do you want to sort the sent items.
You can sort them by To, by Sent, by Subject, by Account etc..

3. Why bother with such a method ?
How about setting up sub-folders, each with a name of your recipient.
Drag/Drop ( or Move To option ) and place the sent items to the corresponding sub-folders.
Will that work ? Or, do I misunderstand your need ?
In my opinion,( underline ' in my opinion' ) the Sent Items folder should be empty.

Can't drag items pinned on the start menu to sort them
On build 7000, I could do this. But now everytime I try to drag a pinned item to move it to the top (I like to keep my stuff alphabetically ordered), it just gives me the option to open it with whatever else I'm holding it over. Anyone else notice this and/or know a way around this nonsense?...
