Gary: I’m not sure I follow. If one opens a conversation, the most recent message is displayed. OK - but, that only applies to “Conversations”… right? And I would presume that the definition of “Conversations” is any email with > one message… yes/no? So, yes, one can see the latest message in a Conversation, but what about the dozens of other emails that were not part of a Conversation… the ones with only a single message? They are still listed oldest to newest, which a lot of folks here are saying is ass-backwards. I agree w/ them &, although I just set up my emClient acct earlier this week, I’m going to delete it & go with a different email client. As others have noted, having to scroll thru thousands of messages to get to current messages is far too inefficacious. Maybe, however, I’m just not understanding what u have been explaining. I figured I would touch base w/ u b4 I made my final decision to move on.
