On the preview pane the date is as 
Wed, 05 Jan 2011 11:48:08 +0100 (01/05/2011 10:48:08 AM)
but all the messages are listed like 12/06/2010 for example.
which is in mmddyy format, but for us Brits it reads ad the twelfth day
of June

The date format generally follows the system locale - in a terminal type
'locale' and the LANG entry should be something like en_GB - if it's
en_US, that's why it's displaying the date in the bizarre US format.

I should add as well that you can change the locale when starting Evo
from a command line by doing

   LANG=en_GB evolution

so you can make sure it is doing the correct thing.
