on the main message list on the GUI is there anyway of changing the date

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.

You can change your localisation to UK/GB if you want - under Gnome go
to system -> administration -> language and select English(British) -
the change will take effect next time you login.

Alternatively in Evo you can go to Edit -> Preferences -> Mail
Preferences and select the Header tab.  At the bottom there's some drop
downs to select different formats - unfortunately it doesn't have the
standard British way though :-(

You can edit the format by clicking in the box. Just select one that's
similar to the non-bizarre way (:-) and change the dots to slashes.
