or, "Old Articles"? btw, this also occurs in newsgroups.

As noted at the dupe, "Old Mail" doesn't really match the other labels like "Today" "Yesterday" etc.
Created attachment 701469 [details] [diff] [review] patch make the string more generic. it shouldn't be necessary to change the label: http://mxr.mozilla.org/comm-central/source/mailnews/base/src/nsMsgGroupView.cpp#770
Comment on attachment 701469 [details] [diff] [review] patch This should get ui-review sign-off as well. As this is just an improvement in language we don't need to change the string, but r+ is conditional on also posting to mozilla.dev.l10n when this lands to let them know that we've improved the string and they may want to revisit it in their locales.
Comment on attachment 701469 [details] [diff] [review] patch Since none of the other strings mention a noun ("Mail", "Messages"), I don't think we should have a noun in this entry either. So, ui-r-. But, if you go with "Older", I'll say ui-r=me. ;) (Side note: Outlook apparently uses "Older", too. http://www.peterbe.com/plog/clever-date-formatting#c051111ajor ) Thanks, Blake.

Comment on attachment 712168 [details] [diff] [review] patch On the one hand, I think we might want to change the label so that localizers pick up the new string. On the other hand, we're changing it to match the label itself, and we're not really changing the meaning, just how it sounds. So I think I'll say r=me, but please double-check in #l10n to see if they would prefer the label to change or not. Thanks, Blake.
Is there any particular reason to not change it for SeaMonkey too?
