Mail and Address Book Sorting

    A sorting cabability on various fields (From, Subject, Size, etc...) would be helpful while viewing a folder and / or address book. Would this be easy to add?

      Sorting capabilities have been added to the folder/mailbox view. So far implemented criterias are:
      by date (latest and most recent first)
      by who (lexographically and reverse lexographically)
      by msgnumber (high or low first).

      Sorting is done using standard Collection mechanisms, it should be rather simple to add sorting for other criterias.

      The addressbook has been completely replaced by a contact management plugin, which actually supports filtering by the first letter of the last name and by category (at the same time). I think sorting should be implementable too, however, I do not account this to be urgent at the moment (filtering pretty much does the job atm).
