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.

    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).
