Sorting on "To:"

Is sorting on the "To:" field (in Sent folder) in WLM broken? I just tried
to do that hoping to find a specific email that I sent a while back and the
order of stuff in my Sent folder as displayed made no sense to me.

Before I started to dig and figure out just what has happened here I thought
that I would throw out this question. Sorting on "Sent" (date) seems to work
fine as does sorting on 'Subject' . But sorting on anything else appears
broken (at a glance).

Thanks.

dave

ps. Sorting on "From" and "Date" in my inbox does sensible things, BTW.

My sent items sorted perfectly on any field. Perhaps MS also broke that
with the new version.

It's a known bug. Sort by To in fact sorts by Subject. I bet it's one of the bugs that might just get squashed in a release linked
to the launch of IE9 (RC or RTW).
