Yahoo server does not support SITE UTIME. I am trying to change the date modified of a folder using SmartFTP but the message I get is 500 'SITE UTIME 2010XXXXX ': command not understood.
The folders show up as "date created" in their timestamp.

Tried using Filezilla's "preserve Timestamp" - Doesn't work too. Please help as I need a solution to this ASAP!

Additional comments:
1. Yahoo does not allow shell access.
2. I am not sure but Yahoo servers do not seem to support MDTM, MFMT, or SITE UTIME!
