NAME

RT-Extension-LocalDateHeader - Display local date for attachment Date header

DESCRIPTION

The Date: header included in emails received by RT will often be in the sender's timezone (or possibly forced to UTC by the remote mail server). This extension will rewrite the Date: header to the user's timezone while also displaying the original Date: next to it. This reduces confusion when RT lists "Correspondence added" in the user's timezone but the Date header looks totally different. Most non- technical users don't know how to interpret the -0000 or -0400 syntax of mail Date: headers.
