We observe a change in the SMTP headers in the notification emails produced in v7.2.4440 which omits the 'Date:' field..
The effect of the omission is that the 'sent date' used in some email client apps (we first noticed this in the Gmail app) defaults to 12/31/1969... or displayed as 'None' in Outlook.  This in turn causes the inbox sort by date to cause these emails to be pushed to the bottom of the inbox views.

Here's a snippet of SMTP headers from V7.2.4433.. which includes the date field (i've edited some of the identity info to protect the innocent!)

and a snippet from headers from V7.2.4440 .. notice the lack of "Date:" field (not sure why cc: and bcc were included since there's no way to provide any cc or bcc recipients.. but obviously doesn't hurt) .. also, I'm not sure if there is any detrimental effect to not including the MIME-Version field in these headers.

In Outlook, most folks use the 'Received' (into the pop3 mailbox) to sort the inbox, but you can see the effect of the missing 'Date' field in the 'Sent' field I added to my view..  and you can see the change which occurred for notifications after I upgraded to V7.2.4440




We originally thought the emails weren't being sent until we hunted thru the inbox and found them at the bottom of the view with the 12/31/1969 date.

Thanks
Scott
