thunderbird puts time instead of date under 'date' header


Hello, I have the problem with thunderbird 1.5.0.8 that under the header 'date' from the inbox, outbox or sent it puts the time instead of the date. is there anyone that may be able to help me rectify this? it is kind of hard to find messages by date this way.

thanks
ron

Here's how one person solved that problem. Scroll down to the last post to see the solution.

Thanks, I had a look but from what i read this is not quiet the same thing; the problem this person has is with the format in which the date is printed on screen, but my problem is that it shows the time (hours:minutes) that it was sent (or received) under the header 'date'. unless I missed something?

I believe that, by default, TB does not show the date if it is "today." But it does use the date and time in sorting, and show the date (and time) under the "Date" column for dates not "today."

Thanks PTrendholme, you are right, it only shows a time when the message is from today, now the same messages have dates aswell.

regards
ron
