I too would really like to see threads sorted by the newest message in
the thread when sorting oldest first. In fact, it seems to me that
messages should *always* be sorted by the newest message in the thread.
But I can accept that others might prefer different sortings, in which
case your sorting suggestions seem abundantly reasonable to me, Dirk.
