Since there are two actual times that are unique for each single piece of email, time sent and time received, and they can not possibly be the same.

Is the time that an email leaves your PC, . . which is the time born on the email record in the sent file, . . the same time it bears when received by the recipient ?

Depends on a lot of things. First and foremost the way the sender and recipient mail servers are set up. Do they use UTC time or do they use local time? If you have that information then you can calculate time differences.

Other factors play into it such as when you send does your mail server have a malware scan queue so there is a delay? Is the mail sever set up to send in bulk at specific intervals. Like wise on the receiving end.

As I said many things can come into play when you hit the send button and dispatch your email to the ether.

Ok, . .I find your reply of interest and somewhat informative but I need to know a tad more about what you have said , so I'll look into it,thank you!

May I now ask you what I believe I have asked before and or rephrase it.

Is the time stamp on the email in my sent folder the same as the time stamp on the same piece of mail, (email) when it arrives at the recipients In box ?

Not likely. Unless sender and recipient are on the same mail server.

Then if the two parties are not on the same server and the two designated times are, "sent" and "in", and the time is posted to the sent mail and recorded on the senders email, . . then, when it arrives at the recipients location, is there a location on that email with the senders time record, for example in the properties ?
