Thunderbird displays the time only for messages less than one day old by default, you can change the display by following these instructions <http://kb.mozillazine.org/Date_display_format>. Messages which have a datestamp of 2/2/2040 are a different matter. Could you please use View -> Message Source to check the headers of such messages and see whether the "Date:" header is present and whether it shows a reasonable date and time? If the "Date:" header is missing, then the behaviour you see might be a variant of Bug 73565 (and thus a duplicate). If the "Date:" header of the email is incorrect, then this is not a bug in Thunderbird (and thus invalid).
The 'Received date' (as opposed to the Date: header) currently is not displayed anywhere. See bug 166254, bug 194585, bug 216033.
Thanks for the feedback. This was probably not a bug. The 2040 date seems to have come from the sender's computer and I didn't realize that the date was not displayed for messages less than 1 day old.
