Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 622175
When grouping by thread and sorting by date, the thread uses the wrong date.
Last modified: 2010-08-23 20:19:31 EDT
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.30.2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start evolution
2. Group by threads
3. Sort according to date
4. Look at the date filed
Actual results: When grouped by thread, the thread retains the date of the first message in the thread and not the last message, when sorting by date.
Expected results: The thread should use the date of the last message in the thread for sorting.
Thanks for a bug report. This seems to work fine for me. There is a hidden option to influence this behaviour. Open a gconf-editor and check
the default value is 'true' (checked), and means that threads are sorted by the latest date in it. I suppose you have this option unchecked. The long description states:
This setting specifies whether the threads should be sorted based
on latest message in each thread, rather than by message's date.
Evolution requires a restart.
Could you check the value of the option and try to change it, if necessary, please?
Thank you ... that worked!
