I've been migrating some accounts from a working Smartermail 15 server (running the final version of 15).
Since the Sent Items folder is so full, I want to copy (and not move) the most recent sent messages to a new folder for the final migration, but there is an issue:
When I copy .grp files from Sent Items to a new folder, and then create the folder in the SM GUI, all emails in the folder have the same timestamp e.g. Friday 12:00 am. Doesn't matter if the newly created folder is anywhere in the tree, including below the root or a subfolder of Sent Items. Since there is no Copy option in the SM GUI, this is done from within Windows. After copying the .grp files to the folder, I create the folder in SM, which auto-generates mailbox.cfg in the new folder.
And re-indexing the account doesn't help either.
This does not occur when doing the same procedure with received emails in any other folder, where the copied emails end up with the correct timestamp.
I understand that this is an older version of SM (it's been damned-near bulletproof so I'm keeping it for awhile) and it is NOT a critical problem.
But I would like to know if there's a solution for it.
