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.

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.
