yes and yes

yes and yes

> I would like it if the 'hdr_date' field were a date-time field - it would make it much easier to display and query the date of the messages.  And this may be asking too much -- the message headers have the date & time followed by the GMT offset - would it be possible to change the time on the emails to GMT time?  This would allow us to display the time in relation to the user's time zone (if available), or in relation to Evolt's time zone otherwise.

umm. lemme see what i can do. can you just add 5 to the time thats on 
them to get GMT?

thans seth..
