Outlook 2007

Greetings:

I have a end user that send out an email yesterday and the date on the sent email was September 26 2012 instead of august 26 2012.  He was able to send other emails yesterday that had the correct date.  I also checked the exchange server and it has the correct date.

outlook 2007
exchange 2003

anyone ever see this?  how is this even possible?

Did the email yesterday include an Excel attachment?  Excel has an option (Advanced) to use the 1904 date system. Make sure that is unchecked.

Also check the user's Region Settings in Control Panel to make sure that the Region and Date/Time is correct on that workstation.

The local outlook client will timestamp the message based on the local workstation time/date

ahh.. you didn't specify received time in the original message.

Received time is set by the mail server.  I've not seen Exchange adjust the date on a message.

What date/time do the headers show?

If you find the message ID and check the exchange server using tracking, does it match?

can you view the email header if you are the sender?  I can't seem to find it....

It definitely says send next month 9/26/2012 on his client...

The SEND date will be whatever your local workstation is set to.  

ie. I changed my date to 8/29 (today is the 27th) .. I sent it.

In my sent items, it is dated the 29th .. in my INBOX where I received it (another email address) it is dated the 27th, when it was RECEIVED.

If you want the headers, click on the message in Outlook 2007 and select Message Options. The headers are all there and you can scroll through for the headers you need.

How did you find this out?
Did the recipient report the issue?

If you look at the users sent items, im willing to bet its got the correct date on it

Im also willing to be the Recipient of the Email or the PC which received this email had incorrect date and time settings

If the settings on the local machine are wrong the email will appear as if it was sent/received on the wrong date

@apache09 - Yes the end user reported it because in his sent items it said sept 26 2012

However I had him check and the recipient had the correct date.  I reset the system date on my computer and sent a message and I was not able to duplicate the scenario....possibly an Exchange hiccup?

aindelicatoCommented:
again .. the SENT DATE is based on the date/time of the sending workstation.  Outlook timestamps the message using the local workstation time.

the RECEIVE DATE is based on when Exchange delivers the message.

Set your computer to next month.  In WIN7 you must click "Change Date and Time settings" not just click another date on the calendar in the tray.

Go to Outlook, send a message.  Look in your SENT ITEMS it will be dated next month.

Go to the receiving machine, it will be dated TODAY.
