Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2) Gecko/20070219 Firefox/2.0.0.2
Build Identifier: version 1.5.0.10 (20070221)

Using a SSL IMAP server, if there is a connection error the default ordering is reset for all folders.  That is, I normally order with the newest messages on top for all folders.  If a connection error occurs to the mail server, the ordering is reset to oldest on top.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change default ordering in mail viewing window.
2. Force a failed connection
3. Notice that once the connection is restored the ordering defaults back to oldest first.



Happens on all O/S's that I've tried - Solaris, Windows, Linux.  Has been an issue as long as Thunderbird has existed.
