Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 110893
"Redirect" changes date on message being redirected
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
When using the "Redirect" command on the "Actions" -> "Forward" menu,
Evolution changes the date on the redirected message to be the current
date and time.
This is really confusing, since the original From:/To:/Cc:/etc.
headers remain unchanged (as they should) - it makes it look as if the
original sender sent the message at the time when the redirect happened.
Surely the Date: header should also remain unchanged when redirecting?
Still doing this in FC3, evolution-2.0.2-3 - "Date:" header being
changed instead of adding a "Resent-Date:" header.
Still doing it in FC4, evolution-2.2.3-2.fc4
I'm guessing that after nearly 3 years this just ain't gonna be fixed. But, for
what it's worth, it's still doing it in FC6, evolution-184.108.40.206-3.fc6...

Upstream patch against evolution-2.8.0-7.fc6.src
Here's the upstream bug report:
This patch fixes this longly survived problem.
Thanks for reporting this, and for supplying the patch.
I'm sorry this went for so long without attention; for some reason the bug was
still assigned to me and not mbarnes.
Reassigning to mbarnes; once again, my apologies for not handling this sooner.
Closing as UPSTREAM since this was recently moved upstream.
I will continue to track the problem there.
