Put the dropdown box back in email "Settings", "General" tab to allow me to set how to sort my mail display. I prefer old on top, new at bottom. The same as I read books front page to last page.

I prefer NEW mail at the top -- but better yet, I LIKE the option that allows everyone to set their own preference!!
Yes I second that, I liked the idea of reading old mail first. Good post..
