    Cannot sort search results by date ascending. Please add a feature to sort search results.

    I have a saved search for isread:false that I use to read all of my unread email.
    I want to read my unread messages in order from oldest to newest.
    I cannot sort the search results by date ascending, so I’m stuck with reading my unread messages in newest to oldest order.
    I could scroll down to the bottom and go through the results starting at the bottom and going up, but threaded messages are still grouped together, and when I select the thread, the newest message is selected by default.
    I find reading the newest message in a thread before I read previous messages very confusing.
    Please add a feature to sort search results that supports sorting by date ascending.
