Inbox discussion thread sorting

Hi
I have a user that likes the inbox in discussion thread view. The problem is that a reply, that is part of a discussion get buried off screen. Is it possible to have the whole discussion with a new thread move to the top of the page, which is what you would expect if you are sorting emails by date and it is the newest email?

Thanks, Rod Fraser

Rod,
I don't quite understand what you are describing. Maybe a screenshot
would help.

Re: Inbox discussion thread sorting

Thanks, Ken. You will see from the screenshot that the most recent email is down the page attached to the thread. If you have a large Inbox that reply could be buried off screen and you would not know it. It would be nice if the thread with the most recent email would rise to the top of the page as it does in a default view. Even if you see the Notify message, it can be difficult to find it if you have several unread emails.

Ok, that's what I was seeing on this end. The only workaround I see
right now would be for the user to check the Home View. This has an
Unread Items view. I don't see a way to change the mailbox threaded
view short of an enhancement request. There is a link to the Ideas
site in my signature. I did notice that there is an enhancement
request for a one button unread filter option. You can see that here:

be worth voting for...or create your own.
