[Solved] mutt: thread sorted by last activity, but mails sorted chronologically

1ace Asks: mutt: thread sorted by last activity, but mails sorted chronologically
My ideal configuration would be:

  • threaded conversations
  • sort threads in order of most recent mail in thread (thread: “last activity” order)
  • sort mails within thread in order they were sent (mail: chronological order)

I seem to only ever be able to get 2 out of these 3… The best I managed to get is with these settings:

Code:
set sort = threads
set sort_aux = last-date-sent

This gives me threaded conversations, with threads sorted by last activity, but this sort_aux makes mails within each thread appear in a weird order (AFAICT: order of the last leaf in each branch).

Is there any way to keep mails in chronological order, or does mutt not support?
