Mail Client Message List

Hello!  I have looked on-line for an answer to this question but
haven't been able to come up with anything yet.

I have two accounts in Seamonkey Mail.  Messages are listed in
chronological order, oldest to newest.  When I open one account the
message list appears at the bottom, and when I click "Get Msgs", the
new messages appear.  This is the behavior I want.

However, for the other account, the message list always stays at the
top (oldest messages).  I can scroll to the bottom, of course, but
when I click "Get Msgs" the messages are fetched but they do not
appear in the message list.  If I visit the other account, then
switch back, the recently fetched messages are there.

I have not found any settings that control this behavior.

How can I get both accounts to be processed in the desired manner?

Suggestions welcome.

>>oldest messages at the top<<
If you click on the word "date" at the top of the date column, it should invert (newest at the top).... if you do that once, does it still go upsidedown the next time you check the mail? JW

Marc, the grey matter is not working as well as it once did, but I mean 
to remember (maybe from Netscape Suite or Mozilla Suite days) that there 
used to be a setting which allowed the Suite to remember which e-mail 
was selected last, so, at least, if you had selected the last/most 
recent message, when you went back to that e-mail account, that same 
message would be selected.

I've looked through the Edit->Preferences->Mail & Newsgroups 
sub-sections and also the Edit->Mail & Newsgroups Account Settings, but 
could not find anything appropriate.

Maybe a look through about:config might help.
