Displaying "Subscribed Threads" -> new folder "All Folders"


I suggest an enhancement for the feature Display "Subscribed Threads". Currently, upon calling this feature the default is the folder "Subscriptions". If one doesn't remember anymore in what different folder a required thread might be it would be helpful if there was the choice to display the contents of all folders sorted by date / time. So the menue might be amended with something like "All Folders". I'd even prefer that displayed as default, leaving me the choice to narrow it down later.

There is that .

You could "demolish" the folder scheme then and leave it be with "Suscription" as it was in the good old times .

If the folders are adding unnecessary structure, structure that is getting in the way, why use it?

Or is it useful sometimes & sometimes not?

I use it (more, since we can choose a folder from advanced editing <- would be nice to have at the "Quick Reply" too) to bundle topics, like "serial port + FAX" | "hard discs + IO" | "printing" etc. If one is looking for some information, vaguely remembered from an old thread, you can find it easier and faster...

To summarize: Sometimes folders are useful & sometimes they get in the way. Having a "Show All Folders" would ignore them when they are in the way. And, of course, not using them would, well, destroy their usefulness.

I think you're right -- this would be a good enhancement.
