Cannot sort mail by time sent (datastore v2)

When you click on the column heading to re-sort what happens?

I'm trying to reproduce this, and I've created some mail with the same dates as
your and they sort correctly. Unlike your screenshot. Its really only the top 2
messages that are out of order.

I didn't try this, instead I moved to another folder, then moved back and
problem disappeared.

Top 2, right. They was generated as notifications in web service rapidly one
after another. Then, after receiving by Scribe, moved automatically to other
(currrently selected) folder on filter rule. So, I'm suspecting a filter issue.
I'm sorry I didn't mention this last time, but I was in a hurry on my job.

BTW, Scribe's weird way of fotmating dates is very annoying for me.

Ok that makes more sense now. I'll run some more tests using filters and see
how I go.

Can you explain how the date formatting is weird for you? Give an example of
what you're expecting to see.

Are you kidding? Opened ticket #216 is lasting over a year. I didn't know it is
unclear.

There are "Regional Settings" in Control Panel, where we can set up our
preferred format of date and time. You don't need to guess what format I'm
expecting to see, instead you can ask Windows about that.

I vote against strange inventions in that field. Simply follow system settings
to satisfy my needs as other programs do.
