User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: version 0.9 (20041103) Since I am using Thunderbird I am receiving mails with date and/or time stamp which is in the past. E.g. today is Sunday, Dec. 12 2004 5:37pm and I received mail with following date and time: 12/13/2004 12:09am In the first line of the header information you can see when the message was received and further down in the header the date is in the future. Here is the header information of that message: ----------------- From - Sun Dec 12 17:24:50 2004 X-Account-Key: account2 X-UIDL: 7c5d6143b0b30f024f9f9646b0bdb721 X-Mozilla-Status: 0001 X-Mozilla-Status2: 00000000 Return-Path: <firstname.lastname@example.org> X-Flags: 0000 Delivered-To: GMX delivery to email@example.com Received: (qmail 29901 invoked by uid 65534); 12 Dec 2004 22:14:12 -0000 Received: from 11.red-62-57-235.user.auna.net (HELO nd.edu) (220.127.116.11) by mx0.gmx.net (mx050) with SMTP; 12 Dec 2004 23:14:12 +0100 From: <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Subject: Cheapest meds you'll find.

Only with some of them and as far as I observed this problem it only happens with SPAM emails. I never had that problem with other email clients Expected Results: Show the date when my email was received.
This is by design. Mozilla and TB displays the date from the email header (set by the sender) and the header in this example mail is : Date: Mon, 13 Dec 2004 00:09:14 -0500 You are GMT+1 and that makes a 6h difference and the result is what Thunderbird displays. THere are 2 mathcing RFEs for this, bug 216033 and bug 194585. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 216033 ***
