In Vista Windows Mail is it possible to sort mail using different parameters in different folders?
Some email clients allow you to do that, e.g. Saved Folder: sort by Received/Descending, Inbox: sort by Received/Ascending.... and so on.
I find that currently if you set one, it sets them all.
The reason I'm asking this so late in the day so to speak is that I've just switched to (a hacked) VWM in my Windows 7 and 10 OS's from Incredimail, which was driving me batty but did have that one redeeming feature. Folders all could be sorted differently.
This is not that important but thought I would ask.


Edit: The answer is no it isn't possible.
