Sounds like a UI issue, but do you have a copy of that script you can post?
Maybe something in that file that gets created?
Also, make sure that it isn't a client issue only.  Try opening the messages
with different client types (IMAP, OWA, etc).

Here's a puzzler...

I have recently written a simple script which as part of its output
generates an email message which is dropped into the PickUp folder of an
Exchange server. This seems to work fine except that Outlook displays the
delivered message as having been sent in 2005!

Below is the header from the message that is delivered. As you can see all
dates are 27 May 2004, but Outlook shows the sent date as 'Thu 27/01/2005
03:41'. Where is this 2005 date coming from?
