When I move messages from one Imap account to another Imap account the recieved date changes to the current date-time.
In this way am not able anymore to sort my message in historie.

Can this be fixed ?

When fixed, how can I repair this messages?

The Imap server's are Dovecots. Moving between different accounts on same server as wel moving between account to different server have this issue.

  • Dovecot stores it's internal date when it arrives. This can't be fixed.

    You can enable the received date column in the Group-Office grid and sort on that.

        I Found something, in the column top row there is a sort option and i also able there to select other column's.
        In Dutch there is a column "Datum verzonden" and a column "Datum".
        The column Datum was already selected, but this represent not the recieved data's but problably the dovecot internal date
        It seems me that the translation Datum verzonden is the date that the message was posted, and Datum the messaage was recieved at my side , this is not the hole story i think ?

         
  • Yes, you want to enable "Date sent" and disable the internal date. The date sent should show the original date.
