Re: new messages keep going to the bottom in thunderbird

Gene New Zealand <hurrikennyandopo@...>

did you press the enter key on it for it to take affect?

A sending is going up  where descending is going down. from newest to oldest and the other is the other way.

Is it only on the one folder or a couple?

I've done that twice already. HHere are the steps I took.

1. I went to the view menu with alt V.

2. I arrowed down to "date" and it was checked.

3. I then arrowed down to "descending" and hit enter on it to check it. I shut the computer down to go do something else. When I came back, the new messages were on the bottom again. Maybe there might be something else I need to check or set.

I just wanted to let you know the steps I took.

Hi, everyone,

Whenever I go back into thunderbird after doing something else, I have to keep sorting the messages so the new ones will go to the top like I had them. Is there a setting I might need to change in thunderbird?

Thanks in advance.
