Description chris 2003-11-25 06:02:34 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.
Comment 2 chris 2005-10-14 13:51:32 EDT
Still doing it in FC4, evolution-2.2.3-2.fc4
Comment 3 chris 2006-11-04 10:52:06 EST
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-

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.
