Description Martin Fabian Hohenberg 2005-08-18 19:44:42 UTC
Version:           1.8.2 (using KDE 3.4.2, Kubuntu Package 4:3.4.2-0ubuntu0hoary2 )
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.5 (Debian 1:3.3.5-8ubuntu2)
OS:                Linux (i686) release 2.6.10-5-386

I am using threading for my emails. This works fine, unless I get a reply to a message thread that is several days old. While KMail informs me that there is a new message, I am unable to find it on top and have to sweek trough douzends of threads to actually find it. This anoying behavior is because if you sort your mail folder by date, message threads are sorted according to their first message. It really would be more convinient if they were sorted according to their last message.

Sorry for posting this as a bug. I meant "wishlist".
