I am experiencing an issue with mail imports (via the EF capture key): there is usually a handful of messages in each mailbox import that has the wrong modification date in EF, whereas in Mail the same messages are listed by the correct date.
Close inspection of the raw source in both Mail and EF reveals that the correct dates appear in the To, From and Received fields, but false dates in the Date field. Mail not only lists the files correctly but parses them correctly in date range searches. EF does neither. I understand that EF is probably doing the right thing in going by the date field, and that the error is in the composition of the original email, but why is it that Mail is apparently more error-tolerant. Would it not be preferable for EF to follow the same practice?
