  • Exchange SBS 2003 Received Date Stamp Is Wrong

    Yesterday I setup an SBS2003 R2 server running Exchange Version: 6.5.7226.0

    When I connected the exchange to the ISP POP server the exchange server started to download the emails that had been sitting there for a few months.

    However, I soon realized that the received date in Microsoft Outlook of all the emails, including those that were received last week or last month by the POP server, were now showing a received date of June 10, 2010

    Why was the original received date stamp of the email changed?

    How do I prevent this from happening to the other 3 mailboxex I have to import?

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    Short answer is that you cannot when using the POP3 connector.

    The date that you have shown is the date that it was received by Exchange. That is indeed correct. It is not the date that it was received by the POP3 server, because that isn't the last server in the chain.

    The date that the message was sent hasn't changed.

    The only way that would work is to download the email through Outlook, although I think that may also show the received date as today, again because that is the date it was received by the client.

      I've had avery similar problem recently and I came across a small utility that would "fix" the dates based on the headers of the e-mails. But for the life of me I can't seem to be able to locate it again...

      Anyone ?
