ME020279 - TRB: Outlook Express does not show sent date in Sent Items folder with HTTPMail


Outlook Express will not display any 'Sent' date in the mail list for the 'Sent Items' folder when using HTTPMail. The 'Received' data column is populated though. When an email item is selected, then the 'Sent' date column is then populated.


The Outlook Express email client only requests one date from the server and populates the 'Received' column with this. Only when it retrieves the full email from the server will it then populate the Sent column. This appears to be an issue with this specific email client, as Outlook 2003 displays this correctly. Use the Received column instead of the Sent column to sort messages.
