I want to sort my email in Gmail by the sender, rather than the date received, is there a way to do this?

Why do you want to sort by sender? Are you looking for one sender in particular? Why not just search for them? –  x3ja Jun 30 '10 at 21:30
@x3ka - I want to be able to read through email from a group of senders, but I want to see each sender's emails co-located in the list rather than ordered by date. –  LBushkin Jun 30 '10 at 21:32

If you really need to do this, one way is to download your messages into Thunderbird, for example, and sort them there. Google has a philosophical objection to sorting (except for reverse chronological order by last activity, of course) and is unlikely to implement this anytime soon.

There are some hacks to do this kind of thing here...
