My husband and employer both sent me an email that shows the correct date in the email time line, but Outlook shows a recieve date of April 2008.

It doesn't happen on every email, just some. We've all checked our clock dates and their correct. Talked to my Internet Service Provider and they said it was an Outlook problem.

Any ideas?

Thanks, :thumbsup:

Hi helpcook, you dont mention what version of Outlook you are running but this link is the same for most versions http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q197717/ Also check Windows control panel>date & time>time zone. Make sure all is correct.

Sorry, but the referenced information did not help. It's talking about time zones causing the time to be incorrect. I'm talking about some, but not all emails coming in with an April 2008 date.

Could I have a virus or something that is causing this to be random?

I'm using Outlook 2007 and all the dates & time zones match between it and my computer.
