Sometimes people create a new blank e-mail to respond to an old email conversation, which makes my job more difficult because I have to find the last conversation to remember what they are talking about.

  1. What is the best way to fix this?

  2. I want Gmail to show emails in the inbox by email-address. If that makes any sense, i.e., in the inbox I want to see emails by sender, and when I click on a line in the inbox, it will show me all that the person ever sent me, in only one page.

Is it possible?

Gmail doesn't support sorting by sender however their search bar can be very helpful for this.

There have several key words such as FROM: TO: SUBJECT: LABEL: .... If you're looking for an email from Joe Blow you can search for all his email by

  • FROM:Joe Blow
  • FROM:Jow
  • ...

For more info about the keywords or how to use them see Google advanced search.
