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.
