Arranging messages in order of last reply?

    I already have WLM display messages that are watched, in the top of the
    right pane. I am wondering if I can order them (in addition to watched being
    on top), so that messages with new replies go up to the top? From what I can
    tell, the sort order is the order in which the first message was posted. Is
    there a way to change this (or at least, get WLM to sort them in order of
    last reply)? I looked in the "columns" options in WLM, but didn't see
    anything that looked like it would sort by this category. I am getting a lot
    of watched messages, and it would be helpful if I could see threads with new
    replies, appearing automatically at the top.

    If your screen is the same as mine all I have is click "View" then click
    "Sort By" there are my only options.

    ====================================
    If you add the "Sent" column (View / Columns)...
    you can click the "Sent" button at the top of the
    column to sort the messages by 'Sent' date.

    Click once to sort from bottom...click again to
    sort from top.

    Paul is not greedy. He just wants BOTH watched messages and last replied
    messages at the top.
    LOL

    Hey you got it--I'm not greedy at all. :)

    John, I don't want to organize my messages by the Sent day, but by the date
    that a new reply has come into the thread. Conceivably, thread started four
    weeks ago, but updated today, would be on top of a thread started a week
    ago, but not updated for 3 days.

    I just realized that I can get the entire newsgroup in the left pane to
    appear red, when a watched message appears in that group. Lately I've been
    using the "all news" view which blends them all in, and I don't think it
    appears when this view is selected. Anyways, that takes care of my
    question--I can see which newsgroups have replies by looking for the red
    groups on the left.

  7. Unless he is using Ignore Conversation as well as Watch Conversation
    that would be just Sort By Watched descending. Alt-V,b,W Alt-V,b,d
    (With that sort order Ignored Conversation comes first.)
