From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.1b) Gecko/20020729 BuildID: 2002072904 The Mozilla mail client displays the date/time of any new email message as the date/time that was set on the sender's computer. If this date/time is not accurate, new mail will not show up on top (bottom) of the list of messages, even if sorted by date. I do not know if this behaviour is by design or if it is a bug, but I consider it incorrect behaviour. I suggest that the message date should be defined as the date the message is fetched from the mail server by the receiver not when it is has been sent by the sender. At least there should be an option to change this behaviour into what I suggested. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Change system clock to any wrong date 2. Send a test mail to your email address 3. Change system clock to the correct date 4. Receive mail Actual Results: Mail will not show up on top (bottom) of message list if sorted by date Expected Results: Mail should be on top of list, as the date was correct when the message was fetched from the server.

You know, we do have a sort by Order Received -- it's menu item View|Sort by|Order Received.
Ah thanks, I did not know that. That feature is well hidden though and not quickly accessible if one wants to quickly change sort order by clicking on column headers.
