Here's what I was trying to do. We wanted to move an existing mailing
list to one hosted by ezmlm+EyeBrowse.

We didn't have direct access to the server, we thought we could just
send all the e-mails in the old archive to EyeBrowse, and make it
think that those e-mails are sent to the new list.

>From EyeBrowse's point of view, this would look like as if the list
has been suspended for quite a long time. It suddently receives many
old e-mails.
But this didn't work, which led to this report.

Also, even under a normal use, there's a fair chance that you send
e-mails in 23:59 and it gets received 00:01 the next day.

But you mentioned a good point that clients often misconfigure time.

I guess one possibility is to trust the Date header if it's older than
Received headers. This would prevent e-mails incorrectly displayed on
top of the list,
and I suspect people care less about new e-mails displayed at the bottom
of the list. But I'm not sure if this is really a good idea or not.

Anyway, I now feel that this is not really an issue of EyeBrowse;
importing
an existing archive to EyeBrowse seems like a snap as far as EyeBrowse
is concerned. It is the problem of the service provider which doesn't
let me
work with EyeBrowse directly.

If you know any trick around this area, that's great, but otherwise please
go ahead and close this issue.
