I have a software tool that uses Groupwise 8 API to import email data for a Groupwise 6.5 client. During all the tests on Groupwise 8 Client, the imported emails (read using Groupwise Message CreationDate) shows the right date. But on a Groupwise 6.5 Client the dates are showing up with year 2050.

I have a few questions:

1. Any insight into why the dates are coming up for year 2049, 2050 etc.
2. Is there any other way to access the date other than creationdate?
3. What is the best way to pull up mail header to extract date from it?
