I told you all about the new Outlook.com beta test of a new inbox last week. You can click here to read all about that.

This morning I heard from a reader who wanted to know how to turn off the conversation settings. Conversation mode groups all messages from a particular sender or on a particular topic together into one thread.

Some people find it convenient. I’m not a fan.  Well, I’ve got some bad news. You can’t turn off conversation mode… yet.  The folks at Outlook.com have responded to a stream of complaints by saying they’re working on it.  For me, this was a deal-breaker, I went back to the old look.
