Re: [Evolution] Threaded mail display during delete

I checked and I did have the date sort ^ v set.  I've unset it and will
check with my next big batch of mail.

In threaded view, mails are threaded by the In-Reply-To header. Mails in
threat are not sorted by date but by date in the current threat. If you
remove the parent message, where should it go?

It is then sorted by date -- as you wanted.

Sorry, AFAIK there is no way to change that. I can't even imagine, how
that should be done.

Actually it was changed, what version are you using?

If you ARE NOT sorting explitly, and only using the message arrival date
sort order, plus threading, then if you delete a parent message, it
should drop the children back in the same spot.  Until you switch
folders (i think, definetly when you expunge) when it will rebuild the
list.  At least, it's supposed to work that way.

If you are sorting explicitly (i.e. there's a v or ^ on the column),
then it always does a sort - we can't really fix easily that because the
sorting is handled by the display widget.

I don't have a problem with that, as I don't have 'Hide deleted
messaged' checked. The threat remains intact until I expunge or empty
trash. Maybe that helps...

Thats the other solution too.  Actually since using evolution i
basically never delete mails anyway (partly to load-test it, partly
'cause i get too much to care to), so i dont have this problem :)
