Hmm. Wouldn't that be a perfect reason to leave the order up to the user
(which we'd prefer anyway)?

I didn't know that. Why did you do that? Did I miss an announcement and/or
discussion about it? I'd definitely would like to have the Draft folder
below the Sent folder, for instance. And I had that order for years, and
never had a problem with it.

Well, it should, but is still not the case.

See screenshot attached (where "Posteingang" = Inbox, "Entwürfe" = Draft,
"Spam" = Junk, "Gesendet" = Sent, and "Gelöscht" = Trash). All marked in

You BTW missed to answer my question what exactly should have happened after
your fix - automatic reordering, or was/is there any action on our part
being required?
