Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.0; SLCC1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506; InfoPath.2; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: 2.0.0.14 (20080421)

When the following view options are used

"View" -> "Sort by" -> "Date"
"View" -> "Sort by" -> "Grouped by Sort G"
"View" -> "Threads" -> "Unread"

New mails do not appear correctly in the mailbox view.
However if you view another mailbox the mails will appear correctlty when you return. 

After removing "View" -> "Threads" -> "Unread" new mails do appear correctly.

Using IMAP4 - don't know if POP is differnt

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Apply the following settings
"View" -> "Sort by" -> "Date"
"View" -> "Sort by" -> "Grouped by Sort G"
"View" -> "Threads" -> "Unread"
2. Look at the inbox window
3. Get somebody else to send you a mail
4. check mail ...

Thunderbird 2 doesn't always group new messages correctly iirc.  This is probably fixed in thunderbird 3.  If it is, you can close this bug worksforme or find the fixing bug. It may have assignee=bienvenu

This issue exists in the Shredder nightlies as well; though my "View" -> "Threads"  setting in the menus is set to "All" instead of "Unread".

I have a similar issue where if I select group sort for a pop box, the contents of that box disappears and I have to rebuild the index to get the emails back. IMAP inboxes are fine.
