use quick view

i finally found my sent email by clicking on the View tab, then click on Quick Views and put a check mark (click) All Sent Items. Now it's listed under the Quick Views heading.

then I realized I couldn't find my sent mail because I had Conversations turned on. If you turn off Conversations (also under View) then you go back to the old listing of Inbox and Sent Items.
