Well, I don't know what that column does, I have never worked it out!
But if I sort by the #, which I think should be the order in which the 
email is received...
It does not work...

Actually thinking about it, maybe it does so long as you never close 

message   	date
1		25.07.2002
2		18.01.2003
3		21.06.2002

the above is the first 3 messages when sorting by the # column.

Towards the end of the mailbox everything is OK.

Looking at lookout :-), the date on the email dir screen in the date 
the email was received and the date when reading the email is the date 
that is was sent, so sometimes you see big differences.
Maybe a setting on the config screen to allow you to select the date 
column to sort on?

Or can someone point me to the place in the code and I will hack it.
