There is no drop down arrow near the date column.  Now what?

In your Inbox just below Delete (which is just below the Calendar Tab) there is a "Sort by Date" item.  Click on that to change your sort order.

Also - when you sort by date (or subject, date, sender, etc.) - if you want the order to be opposite you just click the same sort option again!

So if select sort by date and the most current emails appear at the top, but then you decide you want the oldest emails to appear first - just click the sort option a second time.  It works with all the sort options.

ajimmo asked what to do if no arrow appears.


I have time to time noticed that the arrows are not visible (or I think because arrows are so light in color the symbols blend into the background).


I just go ahead and click on the words such as "sort by date". A menu will drop down and I can select the sort filter I wish to use (sort by:  date, sender, subject, unread, attachments or starred).
