Web Applications Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for power users of web applications. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to find the first archived message in a Google Group (brought over from Usenet, alt.games.sf2).

The default view for Google Groups is most recent first, which makes sense.

However, I can't seem to find a way to reverse that (not that I want to read all of them going forward).

I can filter by a certain date range, but I'm not sure of which range I'm looking for. I know I could whittle it down by using old date ranges and then moving forward, but it seems like there should be a way to do this with a simple sort.

I can't seem to find anything in the settings either to dictate sort order.
