Question:

Question: Removing 'Yesterday' and 'Today' from mail dates.

Hi,


In the top right hand corner of a mail window is the date. If it's 2 days ago the mail was received or sent it will have the date in full format, however if it was received or sent less than 2 days it will either have 'Yesterday' or 'Today', depending when it was sent.


I need the absolute date in my emails, regardless of when it was sent/received. How do I set this, is it possible?


Thanks in advance,

Graeme

You’re welcome.


I suspected the need was something like that. I suggest clicking the PDF dropdown menu, and selecting either Print PDF or Open in Preview. You can then take a screenshot of that, or just print it. It will have absolute dates.

That need is met if you were to print an email, such as when printing a message required for archival or evidentiary purposes.


For just looking at it on your Mac though, no, there is no way to have Mail display an absolute date.
