Description xchen 2015-07-26 12:27:07 CEST
When Claws Mail move an email from one IMAP server to another, Claws Mail uses the current time as the time stamp. This creates an issue when reading such emails on-line.

For example, let's say I have moved an email, which was sent on January 1 2014, from one server to another server by using Claws Mail. On the new server's web interface, the email's sent date will be treated as the date the email was moved by Claws Mail, not January 1 2014.

The bug can be replicated by moving an email to for example Gmail, Outlook.com, and Mail.com, and then view the email on the web interface of these email providers.

You say,"Claws Mail uses the current time as the time stamp", what headers are changed or added?

This sounds more like a problem with the webmail interfaces, since that's where you say the problem occurs.

Hello Paul,

Thanks.

I have checked the header; however, it is not altered.

I need to admit this first. I like Claws Mail much more than Thunderbird. However, when I use Thunderbird to move email, the web interfaces display the sending dates correctly.

Is it possible that something, which does not enter email headers, have affected this problem?

What header are you talking about? I was talking about all headers.

What do you mean by 'sending dates'? This, presumably, relates to one or more headers?

Hello Paul,

Thank you.

I have spent an hour or so testing.

There is no change in the headers, when I checked the source codes of the emails. I think you were right that the bug is the web interfaces', not Claws Email's.

I'm closing the bug.
