Mail app & header time errors

Post Reply New Thread Subscribe

Today I received two e-mails which had the date/time sent showing as LATER than when I downloaded them from the server. These were downloaded with Mail. However, I am also trying out Thunderbird so I retrieved them with that program as well and the date/time was correct - at least relatively speaking. I retrieved the e-mails using each program at about 5:15 PM EDT.

Header from Mail:

Subject: Investment Newsletter Insights: Good news for contrarians
From: MarketWatch e-Newsletter <>
Date: April 26, 2005 8:31:09 PM EDT

Header from Thunderbird:

Subject: Investment Newsletter Insights: Good news for contrarians
From: MarketWatch e-Newsletter <>
Date: 4:31 PM

By the way, in my column display, Mail is set to display the date sent column. When I activate the date received column, it shows a received time PRIOR to the sent time you see above. Can anyone explain this weird behavior?

Mail version 1.3.11
Thunderbird version 1.0.2
OS X 10.3.9

P.S Why is the "edited" time on this message later than it really is. I', editing this at 6:21 PM EDT.
QUOTE Thanks
