Add received (by server) choice for sorting/column/header
Description (last modified by damato)
It would be great if the listview and sort could offer the option of selecting the date the message was received by the server (from first "Received:" header field).
The "Message date" is unreliable as it depends on people setting their clock and timezone properly.
YAM's own "Received" date is not very informative since it's the date YAM downloaded the message, though it works for sorting.
The server date is more likely to be maintained by NTP than the sender's clock and provides both proper sorting and useful information as to when the message was sent, (assuming the message didn't bounce before delivery).
It should be probably be added as a 3rd choice rather than replace either two, as some people might want to go by the sender's clock anyway while other might prefer to know when they downloaded the message rather than when it arrived.
