How to sort files in BlueMail file attachment selection?

    In Bluemail, when sending a message, when I select "attach a file/myfiles/images/camera" (for example), the files in the folder are sorted by default by size (!), rather than descending date, which seems pretty standard in most 'attach a file' schemes. I have found NO way within bluemail to change this sorting and it obviously makes it very hard to find pictures that I recently took, since they are sorted by size and are therefore scattered through the file list.

    Does anyone know of a way to change the file sort in this attachment selection procedure? I've talked to BlueMail help folks and they have no ideas... they frankly don't seem to fully 'get' my question, and when one agent did the 'team' suggested that it was a file manager problem and that I should use ES File Explorer to sort the folder. But that does NOT carry over into BlueMail, which seems to control the sort.

    Or am I missing something here?
    thanks for any help!

    (i i) In hindsight that maybe a feature the developers didn't Implement in their app all together.

    Thanks to others for suggs. I figured it out, with help from BlueMail's Help Team:
    Seems that BlueMail uses Android's default file manager to open and manage attachment folders, but it does not implement the manager's full View features, so doesn't let you change sort settings.. On my Galaxy S6 that file manager is "My Files". And that was set to default to a file size sort. So I went into My Files directly, went to View/Sort and changed the default to Descending time and now BlueMail's folders are indeed sorted that way. Whew! This has been bugging me for months, and now it's resolved!
