I think he means the sort order of each individual folder (check mark,
reading status, attachment, Subject, From, Date, Size) not the order in
which the folders are presented in the folder tree.

I would find that feature helpful, too. When I transfer a mail folder
that has many folders in it between two different machines via
sneaker-net, it would be nice to be able to set the sort order of all the
contained folders to Date without having to go through and set each one
