New Thunderbird function – Group By Sort

Filed under: — adam @ 8:22 am

I noticed that sometime recently, Thunderbird added a new item to the View menu – Group By Sort. (If you don’t see it, it’s time to upgrade. If it’s greyed out, you need to choose a different sort key.)

This is really cool!

If you’re sorted by date, the mailbox displays as groups characteristic of the message date – Today, Yesterday, Last Week, Two Weeks Ago, Old Mail.

If you’re sorted by sender, you get a group for each sender.

Now, we only need the ability to sort the groups separately…
