Grouping Messages
*****************

   In order to make numerous related messages easier to cope with, VM
provides the command `G' (`vm-group-messages'), which groups all
message in a folder according to some criterion.  "Grouping" causes
messages that are related in some way to be presented consecutively.
The actual order of the folder is not altered; the messages are simply
numbered and presented differently.  Grouping should not be confused
with sorting; grouping only moves messages that occur later in the
folder backward to "clump" with other related messages.

   The grouping criteria currently supported are:
`subject'
     Messages with the same subject (ignoring "Re:" prefixes) are
     grouped together.

`author'
     Messages with the same author are grouped together.

`recipient'
     Message with the same recipients are grouped together.

`date-sent'
     Messages sent on the same day are grouped together.

`physical-order'
     Message presentation reverts to physical message order of the
     folder (the default).

   If the variable `vm-group-by' has a non-`nil' value it specifies the
default grouping that will be used for all folders.  So if you like
having your mail presented to you grouped by subject, then put `(setq
vm-group-by "subject")' in your `.emacs' file to get this behavior.
