Description

16 years ago
The ordering of messages in the message list by Subject is different in Win98,
than it is with WinXP and AOL Mail.

Example of message list ordering by Subject in Win98:
TESTING #100
TESTING #10
TESTING #11
TESTING #1

While, the message list ordering by Subject in WinXP and AOL Mail is:
TESTING #1
TESTING #10
TESTING #100
TESTING #11

Steps to reproduce:
1) Send email with Subjects to show how messages will be ordered.
For example, using the above four lines as subjects in four emails.
2) View the mailbox with ordering on a Windows 98 machine with Subject selected
in decending mode.
3) Then, view the same mailbox on an Windows XP, or AOL Mail, again with the
Subject selected in descending mode.
4) The ordering of the messages will be different.

Expected behavior:
Subject ordering should be consistent across all O.S.'s and apps.

Observed behavior:
Win98 displays the Subject ordering differently than WinXP and AOL Mail.

Windows XP:
Machine: Dell Latitude

Windows 98 SE:
Machine: HP Kayak XAs

Still repro.

The correct order should be this based on filename sorting:
TESTING #1
TESTING #10
TESTING #11
TESTING #100

Thunderbird 52.1.1 (32-bit)
