I got a message from the future. (Evolution mail question)


One of the mails I got in my inbox is dated with November 25th. It's been on top of my mailing list for a couple of weeks now... waiting to be received...

Not that that's really a problem, but does anyone have any idea why? I haven't changed my system clock for a long time.

If evolution isn't utterly stupid the problem is with the
SENDERS clock/date.


Cheers,

That's interesting. I always thought that's the date I received it.

Is this message a SPAM ? Because this is a SPAM technique to make their messages to show in top of all other messages, as most people sort the messages by the date field.

No... not spam.

But close. A friend who after 5 years and a lot of angry replies still sends out mass mails without using blindcopy.
(Mac users... what is I gonna do)
