JMH,
Very many thanks - solution found as follows :-

Set "Sort Items by" to "Full Name/Ascending"

Sort alphabetically
WLM 2011 won't sort the "to" column alphabetically. Sort works OK with my other columns--subject, size and sent. Any ideas why the "to" column won't sort alphabetically? I've tried a repair. Windows reports that was successful, but it did not fix the problem. Thanks.
