    We want the option that says "Conversation view"
    .
    Underneath it says, "Group emails in the same conversation for IMAP and POP3 accounts. We can see it is currently on because the box is blue with a white check mark inside. If we have multiple emails from an individual or a group, it's going to put all of those emails in one conversation so that we can easily refer back to them. If we want to see each email individually, not as part of a conversation, we can turn it off by pressing down on the box.
