My setup; a linux server (RedHat 7.2) with sendmail and imap and fetchmail,
fetchmail is run with a cron job every 4 hours. The client is a Win200
machine with Outlook Express.
The problem is that the recieve date/time of the e-mails is the date/time
that fetchmail gets the e-mails from the provider.
Is it possible to get Outlook to display te recieve date/time of the
e-mails when they where recieved by my provider.

Basically, mail clients use the most recent Received: header. When you use
fetchmail to grab your email, and pass it to your mail server, another
Received: line gets added.
You *might* get a solution by passing email directly to the LDA (procmail
etc) and running fetchmail in the silent mode so it adds nothing to the
Please don't CC me on anything sent to mailing lists or send
me email directly unless it's a privacy issue, thanks.
