The display of messages and templates in Email Templates has been designed to improve your experience as a user.
Since you can create up to 100 messages, we don’t want you to have any trouble at all finding your most recent messages. So, your Most Recently Used message will show up first, followed by your Most Recently Modified message.
A message or template marked with a red flag is the Most Recently Used and the one with the orange flag is the Most Recently Modified.
