Using july25 commercial build Mac OS 9.0 Did not happen on linux rh6.0 or NT 4.0 When a profile is migrated from 4.x which had a message filter set to filter on date, the date in the 6.0 rules.dat is recorded as one day earlier. 1. In 4.x open to mail window. 2. Edit|Message Filters. 3. Set a filter using Date Is <today's date/default>. 4. Exit communicator and look at the filter rules file in the Netscape Users directory, file is named Filter Rules. Notice the date filter's date value is "25-Jul-2000". 5. Migrate the profile to 6.0, open mail window. 6. Look at the migrated rules file named "rules.dat" located in the Server directory in the Users50 directory. Path: Users50/Laurel/Mail/nsmail-2 or Users50/Laurel/ImapMail/nsmail-2 7. Notice the date in the rules.dat is "24-Jul-2000". (System date is properly set to July 25. Result: date in rules.dat change for message filter based on date Expected: date should remain the same as it was with 4.x filter file
Hmmm...something is bizarre here. If I edit the rules.dat to make it another date, then launch 6.0, get mail and exit, when I check the rules.dat file it's now a day earlier. So it's not migration, but definitely weird. I don't know what's going on.

Summary: Migrated date filter shows wrong date in rules.dat → Date filter's date in rules.dat changes to a day earlier.
At step 5 of my steps, I believe you need to Get Msgs before exiting and checking the rules.dat file. I've tried this on IMAP and POP, both get their rules.dat changed. Augh.
I did not have any problem using 4.7 with the date filters. They worked OK, no change to the "Filter Rules" (POP) or "nsmail-1 Rules" (IMAP) files.
this is bad, nominating for nsbeta3

Just an update that this is still occurring (mac only) with current (trunk) builds. It's odd, but it happens -- the date is changed. To reiterate steps: 1. Add a date filter, say specifying date 09/03/01. Confirm OK. Note: if you look at the filter again in the session, the date is fine (in both display and in rules.dat) . 2. Quit Netscape. 3. Relaunch to mail, check filter -- date is now showing as 09/02/01 in display and in rules.dat.
Summary: Date filter's date in rules.dat changes to a day earlier. → Date filter's date in rules.dat & display changes to a day earlier.
this bug has not been touched since 2001-09-05, therefore this reminder. Reporter could you please retest with a current mozilla build and let us know if the problem is still present or the bug can be closed.

This bug has rotted, rules.dat is no longer used. msgFilterRules.dat is the replacment file name. The reporter is no longer employed by AOL Netscape.
David, any reason to believe this bug still exists? Skimming a reasonable bug query I did not find any bugs that likely addressed this issue. So despite the age and change in file name the question remains, tho it seems likely, whether this still happens on MAC.
