In GMail that is called a Conversation. You can't ungroup it. Think about if you had a bunch of replies back and forth with the same person, you would have a ton of items in your inbox instead of just 1.
Nevertheless, if you don't want to see the grouping, don't use the GMail app. Use the normal EMail app, or download a third party app like K9 or TouchDown.

I agree, that is the only thing that frustrates me with Gmail. I do a lot of emails back and forth with my business partners and it is really difficult to track the email the way Gmail does the grouping. They need to have a setting to show the last email first and just scroll down the list from newest to oldest.
I have used the stock email app, K9, Maildroid, etc., but they are not nearly as reliable as Gmail. Coming from a Blackberry, I have been frustrated taking sometimes up to 15-30 minutes to get an email even though it is set at the lowest setting of 1 minute or 5 minutes depending on the app. Gmail is the only one I have found that is reliable in getting emails quickly and is consistent. Am I the only one who has these issues with the stock email app?

Really unintuitive and it makes it really easy to miss e-mails. I also hate that there's no clear folder structure - inbox, outbox, deleted, drafts, etc. View labels? What does that mean? Why can't the app simply display the same folder structure that virtually every e-mail client on the planet displays.
I've gotten used to it, but I still very much preferred how e-mail worked on my iPhone. I've been surprised that Google, of all companies, has made e-mail so unintuitive... for me at least.

Re: Switching Gmail conversation view
Has there been any change to this? It irritates me, because my email will show that I have unread messages--but even when I open the thread that contains them, I either can't see any unread messages (or can't make it mark them as read).
I've tried the "Email App" and found it lacking also. I may have to try K9, but I'd prefer to use the GMail app, as it's designed by Google.
Would changing the view on the website affect this, by chance?
Have a great day
