Steps to reproduce problem: 1. Collapse all threads 2. Toggle threads off 3. Toggle threads on Expected results: Threads all collapsed Actual results: Threads all expanded
I see this with 1.5 final. There is a pretty easy work around. If instead of toggling threads back on in the view menu, you click on the display message by threads column header, the threads return collapsed.
That only works for the default sort order, not for threads in any other order.
Really, does for me. I just tried it starting from sorted by subject, junk status, sender, read/unread, date (both ways), and priority and when I clicked on the "click to display message threads" column header the messages threaded nicely in all cases.
But that only works if you want the default sort order...
That's true. If you want threaded in other than the default sort order it takes a second trip to the view menu (View --> Threads --> Collapse All Threads).
