Group emails into conversations
You can choose whether replies to emails are grouped in conversations, or if each email shows up in your inbox separately.
Choose your conversation settings
When people reply to an email, Gmail groups responses together in conversations with the newest email on top.
A conversation breaks off into a new conversation if the subject line changes or the conversation gets to more than 100 emails.
