From my email:

I am using the web based forum mainly because replies are immediately visible.
If you use a mail client, like H sometimes does, it takes a while
before the replies are visible on the forum. However, it seems I cannot change
the threaded view to e.g. a flat list of chronologically ordered posts and it
is driving me crazy.

Maybe I am doing something wrong, but it is very hard to figure out which ones
are the most recent posts. For example, go to the phoneME Advanced forum


And try to figure out the last post in the WINCE501bException thread.

Clicking on the user name who last sent a message does not work. If you click
on the WINCE501bException link, you end up at the top of page 1 of the thread.
If you click on [Last post] in the top bar at the right, you definitely do not
get the last post.

Now try to find the last but one post. Is it on page 1 or page 2? Your guess
is as good as mine.

Can I change the view somehow?

We are currently reviewing this issue and it may be because of the delay in processing the posts from the mailing list.

This is a complex thread, but the last post appears to be showing correctly at the top of the thread. The [last post] definitely isn't working correctly, so changing this issue to a bug in the [last post] link, keeping as major.
