Outlook 2003 shows wrong received date/time

I moved some files from one IMAP account to another. Now Outlook 2003 lists all the moved files as though they were received when I moved them. So two years' worth of email showing pretty much the same arrival time. If I open the same Inbox with Thunderbird, they all look fine. Is there a way to fix Outlook's behavior so it gets the email arrival time from the message headers?

Thanks a bunch!

How did you move them? Did you drag-and-drop?

In case you can't solve this problem, maybe you can use the column
'send on' date/time instead?

Yes, I moved it by drag and drop using Thunderbird.

That is one "solution" but not a good one because when I receive new
messages. the "sent on" date/time is not available until the message is
downloaded to outlook. So, the header for new messages do not appear in
proper order.

I was hoping there would be a tool that fixes timestamp of the file or
whatever Outlook uses to "discover" the received time/date of messages.

I just tried this, using Outlook 2003 SP2 and Thunderbird 1.5.0.7 and I did
not see this. Dragging and dropping in Thunderbird altered the Created and
Modified dates according to Outlook, but did not change the Received date.
