this is the first time I see any such issue. When you said you
the file on the disk, where did it be? As the headers suggest that
message had been received through a POP3 account, there are two
where the message can be. One is in On This Computer/Inbox (or
your filters move them to) and the other is actual local cache of
POP messages, stored as downloaded from the server. The On This
Computer messages are slightly modified, that's why there are those
X-Evolution... headers, but the POP3 cache have there the messages

The On This Computer messages are stored under:
while the POP3 cache is a near neighbour:

I would check the POP3 cache and if it has the To: and Date: also
separated in the file, then it is broken on the sender's side.

Hi Milan,

Yes the email comes from POP3 and when I say the underneath file, it
the file located at:


and in it the Date and field are separated.

So many thanks for your clarifications. I will report the issue back
the sender!


My mistake, I did reply too fast. I have checked too in
