Hi,
They are already, by date, descending.
There is no way to change the sorting.

Subject: sorting mails by date

Hi,

I am new here and I just started using maildroid and I like it very much!
However I cannot find out how to setup the app such, that all message headers are sorted by date, ascending, or descending.

Any suggestions?

Subject: Re: sorting mails by date

Mails are default sorted by the message-UID on the IMAP-Server, that means that they are sorted in order, when they were moved into the specific folder. In the inbox, this is normally the date and time when the mail arrives. But in subfolders, the message-UID is strictly given by the date and time when you move the mail into the folder. So if you move mails manually into a subfolder, you should do this in the right order - older mails first, at last the newest mail - then the sorting is correct. Or you use a filter, which moves mails also in the right order. But it would be great to be able to sort the mails really by date and time instead of the message-UID. I think this cannot be a too big problem - please solve this problem at least in the pro-version and I will buy it at the moment!

You can technically do this, but first you must set the folder offline by long-press the folder and clicking the folder options -> set offline and then sort it by date

The reason is that  IMAP has no sort command in protocol and I can't ask the server to return messages sorted by 'x' It can only return it in the internal server order. However, when made offline, MD will download the emails and treat them like we treat the normal inbox which is sorted. On an actual website email (gmail.com for example), they actually have it offline as well and have the webserver speak to the database server which speaks to the IMAP server and they sort it. There is a proposed extension called SORT in the RFC extension pages (http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc5256.txt), but it is not standard yet and not on many servers at all.

Hi Dale,

When we build MailDroid we built it as a mobile based app. This means we allow users to decide how much data they want to sync. What is stored on the mail server is an un-ordered list of emails. When you get the emails, the other mail clients will download and save those emails and then sort them for you, this uses a bit more data. You can also do this in MailDroid, but you need to manually do it by clicking the context menu next to the folder, folder options, set offline.

Hi,
I like this program (I have bought the Pro version) but I have just become aware of the sorting issue - it explains why on a number of occasions I wasn't able to find emails (manual search) when I was sure they were there. I checked a couple of other email apps I have installed; neither has this sorting problem with IMAP folders. Please fix this.
Regards,
Dale.
