using mozilla 2002-10-05, win98: Inbox (IMAP?) date sorting is incorrect when mail arrives. I have my inbox sorted by most recent mail first (date-descending). When mail arrives, usually the oldest arriving mail is displayed below a mail i had received previously - even though the new mail is younger than the previously received mail, and therefore should be *above* the previously received mail. todays mail 31.10.2525 todays mail 30.10.2525 todays mail 29.10.2525 todays mail 28.10.2525 yesterdays mail 01.09.2525 todays mail 27.10.2525 <-- wrong sort location Oddly, sorting by another collumn, and then resorting by date then sorts correctly - but that is not an accepable solution. Today, *four* mails went below an older mail (perhaps because I left my PC unattended for a while and Mozilla checked for new mail *four* times while I was gone?) - see screenshot below.

Peter Lairo, are you still seeing this bug? It appears to be working as you expect in 1.3 & 1.4b -- currently arriving mails are at the top of the list if sorted in recent-first order.
This bug no longer occurs for me. Resolving WFM. Thanks for pointing it out Mike.
