Time stamp header

I'm quite sure we discussed before regarding this but I wasn't able to find the right topic... :(

I'm using ServerAlive, a very good piece of software to alert an user that one server is currently down or is quite full on the disk.

This software sents messages using the time' Regional Setting. So, with the standard time settiing ("." separator), PopTray doesn't recognize it correctly.

Two examples from the Date header of two messages sent by two different servers (who have a regional different configuration).

This was not correctly recognized (PT reports: 05/01/2005 1:00:00)
Date: Wed, 05 Jan 2005 08.59 +0100
while this was correctly recognized (PT reports: 05/01/2005 17:13:00)
Date: Wed, 05 Jan 2005 17:13 +0100
So, this little problem causes me to have all alerts with 1:00am time stamp. :cry: [/quote]

This was tested with PT3.1.

I'm afraid that the other server is not adhering to the mail format rules (RFC 2822 #3.3). The date conversion is happening in the Indy components.

I also wrote to the programmers of ServersAlive: they told me they'll change the way to use the date format while sending mail messages for version 5 (who will be released next week). I cross my fingers! :)
