First of all, the "Discard messages marked Defer" selection will not
discard any messages which aren't listed and marked Defer on the page
when you submit it, so you don't need to worry about discarding messages
that arrived after you loaded the page.

As far as sorting is concerned, if you can update the server config or
influence those that can, since Mailman 2.1.16, there is the following:

# Shall the admindb held message summary display the grouping and sorting
# option radio buttons?  Set this in mm_cfg.py to one of the following:
# SSENDER -> Default to grouped and sorted by sender.
# SSENDERTIME -> Default to grouped by sender and sorted by time.
# STIME -> Default to ungrouped and sorted by time.
