Steps to reproduce:

sort by date (descending order), group by date.

After a night, when "Today" changed, I see the "Old Mail" being on top of "Today".
See attached screenshot.

order should be natural

Summary: "Old mail" shows first when folder is grouped by day and sorted in descending order → Grouping by date is broken: "Old mail" shows before "Today", also duplicate "Old mail" folders shown

if this has to do with the day changing, I think the bug summary should say so for clarity.

One problem is because of the day change, another problem is duplication of "Old Mail".
This may have been triggered by the date change, but looks like the problem is deeper than just that.
This is reflected in the subject.

Sort completely broken

Not sure, if it same issue, but see attached screen
STR:
1) Start TB, sort mails by date
2) Select View - Sort by - Grouped by sort
3) Change sort by date order
4) Move mouse cursor to mails.
Result:
Mail list completely broken

With regards to the 2nd attachment; sorting is a bit slow. I tried with a small count of messages (in my Thunderbird). Once I re-sort, I briefly see "Old Mail" appearing in top and bottom of the list. Then after that, I get it only in top of the list and "Today" in bottom of the list. You have more than 1,000 messages and this causes slowness and that is why you see it duplicated it briefly.
