After every import or every creation of a new folder Thunderbird shows all 
emails of my accounts in wrong order. The newest mails are at the bottom, the 
oldest on the top. That's not very logically. The point is: It is not possible 
to change this order by default (for all folders/accounts/future 
accounts/future folders). (So I have change the order in dozens of folders 
after each import)

Make it so the user can drag & drop the mail accounts into whatever order is
desired, as often as needed.  Either that or have "Move Up" and "Move Down"
buttons to change the order.

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
