Thunderbird: How can I make messages 'sticky'?

I've just switched from Outlook, where I sorted my mail by flag status and then by date (a nested sort). When I would apply "flag for follow-up" to some random email, it would jump to the top of my list like a BBS 'sticky'. I can get a sort by tag/date view (unthreaded) in Thunderbird which looks like what I want, but when I apply a tag to an untagged email, it just sits there instead of joining its tagged buddies at the top. The sort isn't 'live' or refreshable. How do I get my old sticky behavior back?
Here's what my ideal inbox looks like (* = tag / star / whatever works):
Applying the * to a non-starred email makes it jump to the top (* newest).
Thanks for making my world complete again.
