There is Dovecot service on the server. I had moved messages in user mailbox manually from one to another. Now I am experiencing some sorting problem on iOS device. For example:
- I have mail 2 days old. (Message A)
- I moved older mail to same directory (via ssh)
- Thunderbird and Roundcube works fine.
But on my iPhone I had to configure mail account again. Unfortunately, the messages were in wrong order after sync. Now I must scroll down for ages to get the Message A.
I found, that iOS mail client doesn't support sorting of messages. Is any possibility to re-sort every message via it's date header, or force Dovecot to return messages in required order?

I had found, that Dovecot SORT extension works out of box. Is there any method to force sorting by date?
