|Determine the "identity" of your emails. Set with SAM the sender and the folder folder for sent items with the help of rules.|
In the folder view Outlook doesn't show e-mail addresses but display names. These display names are often different even for the same recipient, so sorting or grouping by this field is useless.
This macro creates a new field for both the Sent Items folder, and the Inbox, which will hold the pure e-mail addresses. For the Sent Items folder the field is created as a Keyword field so you can group by it like Categories. The name of this new field is 'RecipientAddresses', or 'SenderAddress' for the Inbox, respectively.
Paste the code to the ThisOutlookSession module, and restart Outlook. After you´ve sent or received the next email, the new field will be added to the folder. In order to make the new field then visible in the folder, click View Settings/Columns, switch from 'Frequently-used fields' to 'User-defined fields', and drag the field name to the right. (If you also want to add the field to the emails that already exist in the folder, move the emails to another folder and back.)
