Exact! If you drag message gMail, in some way, do not read header
date, but event date. It's the same problem that afflicts most tools
listed above in my first mail (most of this are based on SMTP
manipulation). The only way to preserve original date into gMail web
GUI is use POP3 method (like my) or official gMail tools (only for
Outlook Express, only for Windows) or GoogleAPI (required Premier
Edition 50$/account/year).
