Inconsistent handling of non-existent dates

Post by mpot » Sun Jan 01, 2006 8:28 am

I've noticed PopTray handles non-existent date headers inconsistently.

One of the Australian banks internet banking service sends out notification emails without a "Date:" header, and this seems to confuse PopTray.

The emails show up with a blank date in PopTray's main window, but when previewing a specific email in PopTray, the date shows up as "30/12/1899 8:00:00 AM".

I'd like to see PopTray be a little more consistent - if an email doesn't have a "Date" header, then the preview window shouldn't show any date (ie, similar behaviour to Poptray's main window).

According to section A.3.1 of RFC822, which defines the format of emails (http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc822.html), it looks like the "Date" header is a required header....but my bank claim they can't reproduce the issue (ie, emails without a "Date:" header).

[Edit: this is with PopTray 3.2beta2]

Regards,
Martin.
