a thunderbird question...


hi i've just started using thunderbird as ma mail client... everything has so far gone smoothly except for one annoying issue...

being with a British isp the mail received date is logged in dd/mm/yyyy format... how ever thunderbird assumes that this is a mm/dd/yyyy date format.

so for example....

a message received on the 'first of October 2004' .... should show as 01/10/2004 however in thunderbird the date is shown as 10/01/2004... so when messages are sorted using the date it was received... it totally messes it up... as thunderbird thinks the day digits in date as the month digits...

thanks in advance...
