Mail sorts from oldest to newest by default
This design choice escapes me and is highly annoying. Go go Preferences/Settings > Config Editor (the very bottom problem at the page)
It’s called Advanced Preferences tab. Look up mailnews.default_news_sort_order and change the value from 1 (ascending) to 2 (descending)
Thanks PolarSPARC for the clue.
