I am having very weird problems with WebMail.

When I open the INBOX on my account all messages from before Jan-16 in this
folder (they are about 2300) claim to be from 16-Jan-2005, when in fact
they are old. Now granted, I copied the whole store from a different
machine on Jan-16, so the timestamp on the files is 16-Jan, but the same is
true for the rest of the folders and they are seen normal there. An IMAP
client shows the correct date. Webmail somehow resorts the messages and
"falsifies" the sent date. Any body experiencing the same? Any idea what is
going on and how to fix it?

I tried renaming index.fld to index.bad, but that changed nothing.

I am using KMS 6.0.6 under Suse Linux.
The same happens with 6.0.7.

I think webmail gets the received date from the create date (could be mod date, I don't recall for sure) of the file as it is stored in your file system. I'm not fond of this functionality either.

You might try archiving (zip, tar, gz, or whatever) the files you wish to copy and then expand them into the destination directory. I'm pretty sure that some of these processes will maintain the original create date.

You could also try viewing your web mail by the "Sent" column, instead of received. Sent uses the content of the Date: header. If you're really intrepid (and have the time!), you could write a script that pulls the content of the Date: header and applies it to the mod/create date of the file in the OS. I've never tried that, but I'd wager you would need the setfile (SetFile in the world of HFS+ file systems) command.

Be aware that if the e-mail does not have a Date: header then webmail will always show the current date/time for the e-mail (which is very annoying).

Wish I could give you an easy or solid solution instead of speculation - hopefull it's better than nothing.

Good luck

Thanks for the answer. I kind of figured this was the case. I probably will
make a script to parse and extract the received date from the headers.

Kerio tech support said they are aware of the issue and are working on a
fix.

However the weird part is that I copied the whole store on 16-Jan, thus all
mailboxes have the majority of the messages with a timestamp of 16-Jan. Yet
only the INBOX has the problem. All other folders show just fine in webmail.
