Being Fixed
Date formats are now appearing as mm/dd/yy which is incorrect for the UK

Same problem here all dates shown in US format in 16.1.6418 for all customers.

As we have very few customers in the US having all dates in US mm/dd/yy format is causing allot of complaints.

Any updates on this? We have most of our clients in the UK and we still have the UID issue but now we are put off of updating to the new version if this is the case. We can`t have this, fixing one issue and then another coming up in the following week. This is becoming ridiculous, how am I supposed to regain my clients trust if I tell them that we fixed it but we broke something else?..

Hi guys,
 
Thanks for your patience while this was reviewed. The date format should be resolved in the upcoming minor release. It will be based on your browser locale / language. However, date inputs, like in the calendar appointment creation or report date ranges, should use the computer's date format.

Even selecting the date format from the browser locale / language causes issues as most browsers install with the default English US rather than in our case English UK.

Can SmarterMail either use the Time Zone set by the user in their webmail settings or have a new option to set the date format?
