Thanks for the quick answer.  When I navigate to that Message List tab, there are (only) these options available:

        Display tooltips for messages and group headers
        Hide tab bar when only one tab is open

    Date Display
        Standard format
        Localized format
        Fancy format
        Custom format

As I said, I couldn't find an appropriate option anywhere, either as a general option or for the folders themselves.  And the default appears to be threading turned ON.  Since I updated to KDE 4.2 RC1, I've had to go searching for my unread messages, making it very difficult to read email as it arrives.

I'd much prefer to have new messages added to the end of the list, and not split up into threads (some of which were started days ago).

What am I doing wrong?
