Recently mozilla's mail is only able to display mail CREATION date on the mail
list and only can sort by that date. Using mail CREATION date for sorting is not
  mostly useless, becasue it's enough to receive a mail from someone who's clock
is not up-to-date (i.e. 2027 yr ;) and you will have it all the time on top.
Many mailers implements RECEIVE date field, which lets your mails stay in order
no matter if you party got broken clocks. And I miss that in mozilla mail of
course ;)

Did the feature used to be in Mozilla Mail, I remember there was an option
(pre-outliner) to display an 'Order Received' column in the mail pane (but I
never tried it) and so presumably you could sort in the order the messages were
received. Was this feature ever hooked up and if so why did it vanish on
conversion to outliner?

Argh. My fault. Order received is still here, and seems to work. Good anyway,
however since I moved my mbox files from other mailer, all the older mails
weren't in fact received. And now, when sorted with "Order received" my mbox is
damn messy. I submit feature request for that I think...

You still see order received? I don't. Is it a recent build you are using? If in
doubt quote the build id in the titlebar

Verifying this bug because mail sorting by receive date is there.
