Toggle Conversation view on/off - Outlook 2013

When you log into your Live@edu email account for the first time, it is defaulted to show your emails in 'conversation view'.

Having conversation view set, Outlook identifies which emails are replies to an original and will group them together, so you can easily see the 'thread' of the email conversation.

You can toggle this feature on or off, choose to use it in selected folders or across your whole mailbox.
