A very strange date

Post by MBaas » Wed May 08, 2002 7:27 pm

Hi Renier,

I often had cases where mails were shown with a 1900-date or similar unlikely dates, but in all those cases the header showed the same date. But know with one mail I have a special phenomenon:

Not that it really bugs me, but I thought you might like this, as the forum is so quiet these days :D

All the best

Michael

Well, I found few times the same problem, tipical by spam/virus messages.

And, I was unable to retrieve the message (this was the error message I found twice).

Ciao,

I think according to the RFC the date must be in this format:
Thu, 9 May 2002 14:57:58 +0300

And in English I should think.

I usually see in PT into Date column:
09/05/02 14.56.29

Please check because I think it depends about International Settings in Control Panel.

Oh, I thought since it was shown correctly in PT's listview of the mailbox, this would be some sort of internal problem...

But this was no spam, it's a bill from one of germany's largest webhosters, so normally you would expect these guys to get their headers right :-) Well, I'll complain and see what happens...

Does the headers state what e-mail client they used?

Maybe just check up on the RFC too, about it being English.

The header says "StreamServe MailOUT"...

Is RFC821 the right one? It seems to be, but they only mention a dateformat "dd <SEP> mm <SEP> yy", without weekday and with a two-digit year only. But the month is english, that's right.

RFC2822 (3.3) looks like the correct one to me.

:oops: Yes, that's right, it says that it superseeds the older stuff. Just for info, I'll keep you posted on the reply I get from my isp...
