Yes, And Threaded. If you check the Threaded view checkbox messages
will be properly threaded (by message ids) and then within threads sorted
to Date/Arrival/Subject/Sender/etc order.

So when you sort by arrival order with threaded on the first sort is
by threads, and the threads are sorted to arrival order by the uppermost
thread entry, then within threads they are sorted by the threading, and
by arrival order when more than one poster replies to the same thread

Its the best I've seen.

The only problem is it tends to make me really irritated when users
reply with non-threading mailers which causes thread splintering
and fives you 5 or 8 threads for the same subject. A peek
at the headers of such posts usually reveals Outlook. sigh...
