|Subject: ||Re: year 2098 ?|
I had the same problem in Outlook Express.
It's a bug in Outlook Express 4.01:
"If the two-digit year is anything other than ‘99, Outlook Express uses the
current century value. For example, if the current year is 2000, and you
receive a message using the two-digit year, '97, Outlook Express interprets
the date to be 2097. However, there is one special case when Outlook Express
uses different logic code. If you receive the two-digit year, '99, and the
current year is a multiple of 100 (e.g. 2000), the year is interpreted as
the current year plus 98 (e.g. 2098). "
solution: upgrade, see webpage:
