Re: [Clip] Delayed Email!!
I believe e-groups does a cache or something. I sometimes see folks heatedly
discussing something, then hours later see the post that started it all.
Now that I am using a POP-Mail server to receive my postings, things seem more
connected, but when I was using a web-mail server, I sometimes had no idea what
the thread was and if it looked halfway interesting visited e-groups site to
see what the thread was about.
I believe e-groups actually has a disclaimer concerning this, but since it is
more than a year since I've read it, I could not quote it for you.

Eb caught it.
I had no idea something like that would happen. I thought email date was
set by email server or etc.
Well, you can take it as proof that I set my computer's date back while I
accomplished testing/exploring/discovering/learning of the "Date" clip.
This scenario would explain why I sometimes get an email from the list with
a date and time that's in the future. Yes, I received one this morning with
the time stamp on it was near 45 minutes ahead of my local time here in
Sacramento, California (near West coast USA time zone) How's that for fast
