I also noticed that viewing the same Maildir mailbox with a dovecot 
server, and with a courier-imap server, with arrival sorting, does not 
produce the same results in my MUAs (Mozilla 1.7.3 and Pine 4.61).

Could I have missed something in my configuration ?

default_mail_env = maildir:~/Maildir:INDEX=/var/indexes/%u

Thanks in advance.
