<CT> Microsoft Internet Mail question (WIN 3.1)

To the list:

Since Juno 1.49 may not be available I was looking into using Microsoft
Internet Mail (v3.03) as my e-mail. This is what my isp uses for their
e-mail.  The area which lists all the mail in a particular folder does
not display the date received.  It just displays No, or invalid, date. 
In each folder (inbox, outbox, etc.) is a file called MSG_LIST. which
contains the information for From, Subject, Date received. I'm including
one line from that file as an example of the info it contains.  Also
included is a copy of the e-mail I sent to my isp support along with
their response.  I was not satisfied with their reply.  Is this really
so?  I tried MSIE v4 for W3.1 but it ran so slow.  If anyone can help,

Bill Grant
 A line from the MSG_LIST. file:

Bill, the problem that you have is not with your computer itself but with
the windows 3.1. Win31 is not y2k compliant at all and this is one of the
problems that have cropped up along with it. The strange thing is, is
not every computer that is running 3.1 is having the same problem....just
some of them. On the side of using the Brightnet Mailman, your always
than welcome to use it no matter where your located or for what reason.
