Just FYI: On UNIX systems, "time" is tracked as the number of milliseconds since 1970. I can see how a "time" of zero adjusted for time zones could result in a displayed value of 12/31/1969. ... which implies that somewhere along the life of the message, the date didn't get set properly (or got cleared). > > Seamonkey /could/ defectively not register some received > e-mail. and thus would call for/accept as new the next time > it queried your e-mail host, but I doubt it because of the > inconsistency.
