Gmail backdating email design your own dating site
Everyone sort of knows I used Custom Time on this one, but I'm denying it." Robby S., Paralegal "I used to be an honest person; but now I don't have to be. As far as I know the only way an e-mail shows a date prior to the time it was written is if the computer clock is messed up, and if that is messed up then other programs also get messed up and some might not even run properly or at all. If you DID get it to work, many recipients would think: 1) There's something wrong with the sender's computer.or 2) This message is spam, and I won't look at it. That is if they SAW the message, which I don't guarantee.
Gmail's "Drafts" feature allows you to compose and format an email, but save it and send it at a later date rather than at the present moment.But the email client used the funny [email protected] Labs so following on from ^^ comment.. but in those instances, but for just the email client or web interface to pick up the wrong date/time is not impossible.OK for a prank on somebody that doesn't know to check headers. I don't know whether it takes the time from the SMTP server or the POP server receiving..If the former then you could, would be a funny project.note- I don't recall if the spam one I got was a future one that stuck as new, or a past one that stuck as the first email. Barlop said "But the email client used the funny one." I've seen Thunderbird do just that -- display the date/time from the sender's system -- but Gmail on the web, as well as many other sites, don't use the same header field.
So you are quite right that the email client may display it with the false date.
