I can't use version 10 until I can turn off threading. My correspondents are forever using the same reply for a variety of subjects without changing the title. I've hollered at them but they don't change. I can't use threading!!

I think I tried that and version 10 doesn't have that option, I think. I'm using version 9

My error. I thought by ver 10 you meant ver 102. Ver 9 was released approx 11 years ago and I have no idea what the menu options are. Maybe someone else here can assist.

My bad. I got the digits right but not the numbers OK, I can't go to version 102.2 and I'm staying on version 92.1 So far as I can remember, I don't have the option to view without threading on version 102

Now i'm confused. You said that you do not have the option of View>SortBy>Unthreaded. I still have a copy of 91 and it's there, so I don't know what you're seeing. Could you please do a screenshot of your View menu options? Thanks.

It sounds like you are on the same version I'm on. If I go to About Thunderbird, it offers to update me to 91.12 But the latest download from https://www.thunderbird.net/en-US/download/ version is 102.10 And, if I'm right, if you update to that, you'll have the same problem I do.

Maybe it will help if you restate your problem. Your original post gives the impression that you want your messages unthreaded. I show you how to do that and your response is that you don't have that option on your version of Thunderbird. There is no need to upgrade to 102 from anything you've stated.

First, thank you very much for your patience with me. Second, I can and have turned threading off in version 91 Third, I don't then know why version 101 exists but If I'm forced into it, I guess I'll be back for the same question Fourth, if there really is not need to go there, then I suppose my problem is solved Thank you.

If you are happy in ver 91, there is no need to upgrade yet. 91 is stable. The same menu feature exists in 102, so there should be no need to ask if/when you eventually upgrade. Enjoy.

The new compulsory threading is a real PITA.

No matter how hard you try and turn it off, it keeps coming back - every new search list and folder has it defaulted ON.

It hides important mail when you have a decent volume, and obscures the actual timeline when a discussion spans multiple threats.

It's a serious push for volume users to other mail clients.

I'm using v102.2.2 (64bit) on Win11.
