This is even when you have it set to show the date! It shows the time NOT the Date! Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Just send yourself a message does it every time 2.Not Date shown in message just the Time 3.
This is not Bug. That indicates that the Message is from Today and so Tbird displays only the Time. If you look at tomorrow at this Message the Date is displayed. The Date is also in the Message Source (View -> Message Source) like : Date: Mon, 30 May 2005 17:59:53 +0200
I am actually getting any sent emails are showing in the Sent folder with only the time showing and not the date. If I send an email out at all it now gets only the time added and not the date
Sorry I didn't see the 'further' comments suggesting this is not a bug, but the fact that Thunderbird does not show *today's* emails, instead it simply shows the time. However, once you get to tomorrow! then in fact the date is shown. I still think that is a little odd though, and perhaps it should show *todays* full date and time.
this is by design. You can try changing this behaviour by setting the hidden pref pref("mail.ui.display.dateformat.today", 2); here are the range of values for that pref: http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/intl/locale/idl/nsIScriptableDateFormat.idl#42 in trunk builds of thunderbird, you can use the config editor to add that pref, tools | options | advanced | config editor. In older builds, you need to shutdown thunderbird and very carefully edit prefs.js in your user profile dir, or add the pref to user.js
