A mail has arrived two days ago in my inbox with the correct time imprint, but with no date imprint. As a result, it always shows as if it were just received, on top of the list (well, bottom, in my case). The image linked to in the URL demonstrates it (apologies for it not being very specific or helpful). The steps to reproduce are what SEEMS to have happened, please do not give them much importance.

Reproducible: Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Order the e-mail list as most recently arrived to bottom
2. Select and read the e-mail exactly preceding the last one
3. Receive an e-mail from a message board by a freshly-created mailbox

Actual Results:  
Seen in the URL, though I do not know whether or how they can be reproduced.

Expected Results:  
Mail arriving with date imprint.

Thunderbird, running on Windows XP with Office 2007 Beta 1, Internet Explorer 7 RC1, Media Player 11 Beta 2, no special hardware.

By default mails from "today" do not display the date, only time. (They will tomorrow of course.)

If you want to change it, see prefs to set in bug 221543 comment 1.

Apologies for not making the image very visible, I had to anonymize it before sending (confidential company data).

The point is that the mail isn't from that day. It doesn't have a "date" imprint at all. It always appears on top as if it were just received, regardless what date we are in. I received it a few days ago, and it still was on top until now, when I deleted it.

If you can make anything out of this, please do.
