Version 7: on startup shows me oldest emails first

I upgraded to version 7 the other day but can’t change the order in which my emails are shown. Everytime I start up the application it automatically jumps to the oldest emails in my inbox making me scroll through 1000s of emails in four different email accounts.

It doesnt matter if I sort them ascent or descent… the only difference is that the curser moves from bottom to top of the list - but always showing the oldest email instead of the new ones.

How do I change that?
