Keep older email sections closed

When I close a section in the email windows (2 weeks, older etc)  I do not want them expanding until I expand them, not expanding the next time I focus the app, or restart the app.  Can that be done?

Hello Thomas,
this information is not saved within the database so the Groups will always be open when you start up eM Client.
I will change this thread’s type to an ‘Idea’ so our developers may consider a change.
