    One of my users, userA sent an attachment using ccMail 6.3 to another userB. UserB received the attachment but the date on the file changed to mm/dd/28. In this particular incedent userB was able to read attachment and re-save it. In another case when userC sent an attachment (*.doc) to userD, it change it again to mm/dd/28. In this case the original file could not be read by ccMail or Word. Bios/date/time checks fine. UserA & userB are WinNT and userC $ userD are running Win95
    Any incites?
    Thank you.

      Sounds like one of the machiens needs to have it’s regional settings changed to a long date format in the regional settings. There should be an option for a MM/DD/YYYY format i nthere.

      There was an update from MS for various issues, so you may have to get that depending on the OS

      Good luck to you

      First check the date and time on ALL your systems, including the server(s). It sounds like one of the systems has a date set 28 years in the future. Also, as above make sure ALL your users have 4 digit years set in the regional settings. Lastly makesure ALL your users are using 4 digit years in ALL thier documents, because 2 digit years are ambiguous by their nature, and different versions of different software will interpret them differently.
