Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1310038
e-mails from bugzilla sometimes have the wrong date
Last modified: 2016-02-21 17:15:34 EST
Description of problem:
I sometimes get e-mails from bugzilla with the wrong timestamps.
E.g. the email sent for this comment:
which on the bugzilla page is timestamped "2016-02-17 17:30:45 EST", has a e-mail header saying:
Date: Tue, 9 Feb 2016 14:00:30 +0000 (2016-02-09 15:00:30)
The bad date header corresponds to the original creation time of the bugzilla ticket.
The Received headers are reasonable;

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Occasional - it has not been a one-off since it has happened a few times. But most of the e-mails sent by Bugzilla have good Date headers.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Not sure how to trigger it.
E-mails sent with wrong time stamp.
E-mails sent with correct time stamp.
