One feature I *really* miss from OE, particularly for newsgroups, is the way OE
flags entire threads.  I really want to be able to flag an entire thread *and*
to sort the thread/message list by date, but with the flagged threads at the top
of the unflagged threads.  I still return to OE for news at times because of
this feature.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Option doesn't exist
2.
3.




I opened this RFE on Thunderbird, because that's what I use now, but it applies
equally to Mozilla Mail.
Actually, I see now that I can mark the whole thread with "Watch thread". 
Missed that since there doesn't seem to be a way to do it by clicking in the
flag or thread columns.  A way to do this would be a nice addition, but sorting
by watched threads is what I'm really requesting.

Then you need to change the summary to "sort by watched threads and by date",
and you need to depend on the "multi-level sorting" bug.
Changed summary.  Haven't found "depends" bug yet
Summary: Flag whole threads at once, and sort threads with flagged threads at top → sort by watched threads and by date

Added dependention on "multi-sort thingy"
