    Strange since day 1 (over a month ago) I whenever I get a email from eBay be it a notification that a item has been relisted, sales notification from a seller, etc. of any kind the date is 12/31/1969.

    Its every day on any eBay messages.

    Anyone else notice this and how do I correct this?

    Thanks

    I get similar emails, but they are not from ebay. Mine are mostly orphaned emails that have no data in them, nor who they were sent from. Just the date 12/31/1969. :blink:

    It could be showing 12/31/1969 if it's a bad/invalid timestamp. 12/31/1969 is the start of UTC time. Sometimes it's used when the date that was sent can't be displayed.

    Well I mean the orphaned emails make sense. Obviously there is no data in them because in 1969 all emails were blank. It was the fad. Clearly, email was slower then and it is just now getting it to you.

    Hmmm something to think about but it didn't happen on my Storm1, or 2...

    Wouldn't the BB also have a problem with it then?
    In fact the dates were right on those devices.

    What can I do to find out if this is the issue?
    Its whenever I get a eBay message.

    Thanks
