Emails not in date order

Not sure whether this has been covered before.
Emails aren't always in the order you'd expect if sorting on date order. Look at the first snippet below of my inbox this evening - check out the bottom two entries, both from the same sender.
Before posting this I went and checked the headers to see how long they took to come - just a few seconds - hence it isn't a transmission delay issue.
However the problem's worse than I thought. I'd transferred them by then to a temporary holding folder created for use while I rebuild my primary computer - in there they were located PRIOR to Sunday's emails (see second snippet - sorted the other way round) - completely out of order...

Re: Emails not in date order

have you tried clicking at the top of the column?  that should get them back in order, you can have oldest at top or bottom

Re: Emails not in date order

If clicking the top of the date column doesn't solve it, have a look at the individual messages for the compilation, send and receive times (might need to look at the headers). The sender may have had the message sat in the Outbox for a while before sending.
The order may be dependant on the compilation time rather than receipt time. I'm sure I've encountered something similar to this with Outlook Express.
Edit: sorry, I see you've checked the send & receive times, but have a look at the compilation time.

Yes - that's why I started the topic.
Here's the full header as reported in Beta Webmail - can't see any reference to compilation time:

Re: Emails not in date order

I thought that initially - however 11.57 GMT = 03.57 PST and the software should be able to sort that out shouldn't it.
However looking at the second snippet, why would that put them earlier than Sunday's emails... A red herring I'm afraid...
