Gmail took threading -- which existed for years in open source mail agents -- implemented it in webmail, 
and renamed it "conversations". (By the way, gmail sorts threaded messages the same way complained of in 
the alleged bug -- threads in reverse chronological order, and messages within threads in chronological 
order.  I suspect that this is implemented because of the nature of webmail.)

Microsoft implemented some lame 'group by subject' view (subject words, not message id) and, later, adopted 
the 'conversation' terminology in order to jump on the gmail bandwagon.

If evo has a problem in this regard, it is the lack of next/previous unread message buttons on the toolbar.

Making a mod ala this will add a MailNextUnread button, you can dup/mod
for MailPrevUnread etc.  Someone else will have to educate us on how to
define a png properly so that it shows up on the button.
