Hi, maybe I found a bug in sylpheed v3.7.0. Some messages are not sorted as expected, no matter on applied sorting rule.
You can see that in the attached pictures, first should be sorted by date, second by msg number.

These are threaded messages, the default sorting behavior work as designed because the first message in the thread is used for the comparison.

If you disable threading you will not observe the issue.

If instead you still want threads and you want to sort threads according to the latest message in a discussion (this is usually what you want) you can enable the behavior by setting "View -> Sort -> by thread date".

Ciao, Antonio
