If you click a folder Evo forces the auto-selection of the newest

It's not that sophisticated.  It remembers the highlighted message ID
and automatically selects that when you return to the folder.  If that
message doesn't exist or isn't visible, it either selects the first in
the list or none at all, depending on the context.
To add to what matt has said, the message would also be unselected if
evolution terminates abruptly, either by a crash or process kill
(evolution --force-shutdown). This is to ensure that we don't keep
crashing on start-up selecting the same

Is that configurable in any way? I like my newest mail to be at the end
(bottom) of a list. The "jump to first in list" is mildly annoying in
such circumstances, especially in folders with a lot of mail. Now I
know /why/ this is happening I can try to work around it; hadn't
realised that that was what was causing it.
Its not configurable.
