 +===== Sorting =====
  
 +Sorting affects ordering of messages in the [[.:activity:message_list|Message list]].
 +
 +
 +==== Primary sorting ====
 +
 +There are basic sorting criteria, such as by date, subject, sender, etc.
 +
 +And there's also advanced sorting mode called Threaded sorting.
 +
 +
 +==== By threads ====
 +
 +Sorting by message threads is done after primary sorting is done.\\ 
 +Thread of messages is logical ordering of related messages, utilizing fact that email messages may refer to other messages being replied to. The sorting use message attributes called [[wp>Message-ID|Message-ID]].
 +
 +Message threads are shown in message list as a tree list, where some messages have expand/collapse arrow at left side. Clicking the arrow expands or collapses thread. The thread shows logical flow of messages as they were replied.
 +
 +If viewing [[.:combined_folder|combined folder]] in the message list, threads are constructed from all messages of all folders shown in the list.
 +
 +
 +:info: For yet another usage of threaded sorting, see [[.:activity:conversation|Conversation mode]].
