Similarly for me, though I returned when I had moved to Gmail, which kinda-sorta threads messages -- so I could easily skip over entire threads if I was short on time. In my old, non-threading email client, it was harder to keep track of conversations if lots of messages piled up; just reading them oin chronological order wasn't usually the best.
