Outlook Mobile 6 Inbox (E-mail) Filter Accidentally Activated; How to Disable?

Treo 800w, Windows Mobile 6.1 Pro, POP3 account against ThatOneDomain.com. First, by some mysterious key combination, I've managed to activate some sort of view filter against my inbox. Specifically, I hit "Option 1" in an attempt to get to the top of my inbox. At that point, several characters on each message were highlighted, and I pushed the "1" key again. Now, the status bar at the bottom of the screen says, "thatonedomain.com 21 of 142 Items, Filtered" - and yes, sure enough, only 21 messages are displayed. How the **** do I disable the filter? Secondly, on my BlackBerry, I can hit "T" to get to the top of my inbox and "B" to get to the bottom. Are there similar shortcuts in Outlook Mobile? Finally, is there a Windows Mobile user guide someplace? Documentation on this stuff seems very hard to find.

And BTW, when you are in the Inbox, pressing and holding down the H or 0 (zero) key (depending on your device) brings up a list of shortcuts.

In an e-mail, for example, pressing the 2/R key triggers the Reply function, and pressing the 7/D key deletes the message

I'm not quite sure what you did with the filter. I can't seem to quite follow just what you did. Specifically I am missing what you mean when you said you chose Option 1 .... maybe it's the lateness of the day and I need to look back later at it but if you can either explain it with a little more detail or attach a screenshot then it might be a little more helpful.

In the manual link above, on page 152 it referenced filters tab which may be what you are referencing. My guess is that there is some custom set of features on that device and unless I had it in front of me, I won't be able to assist. I am sure though that if you set it, then chances are you will be able to back out of it with a few attempts ... at least I hope so.

That would better read, "I hit 'Option + 1'". On the Treo, there's an "Option" key, that allows you to, among other things, access the "upper" character set on the thumb pad (e.g., the upper character on 'E' is '1').

The PDF you linked me there clued me in to what was going on: if you just start typing characters in the inbox, the characters will become a filter; e.g., if you enter "the", you'll get a filtered list of e-mails that contain "the" in the "from address" or subject fields. To "remove" the filter, hit the backspace key.

In my case, I was filtering for the "1" character.

That documentation leaves a lot out, though... I'm still at a loss as to how to quickly get to the top of my inbox (or bottom, for that matter). There's also a key combination that I've hit by accident on several occasions that will bring up the alarms interface, but I haven't been able to reproduce the key combo on purpose.

It would be handy if there were a document somewhere that listed all of the built-in Windows Mobile shortcut key combos.

I marked this as answered because it appears that we have some solution based on your comment that the PDF gave some help. I was there was an option to mark it as "partially answered". In any event, I'm glad that led to some success.

As soon as you said that I finally understood just what you did. That is a great feature and you will use it a lot.

No question about that!
