Guess that’s why I don’t read by conversations.  Have mine just following by 
time which of course  means a lot of scrolling, so, for mail that’s less a 
priority a rule is made and it’s it’s shunted to a different mailbox.  Groups 
go to their various mail boxes etc.  But yes that would be a nice improvement.  
 I don’t expect to see that happening though unless it happens in the next main 
series OS.  In other words, outside of OS x.
