Yeah, our timezones are GMT+9.5 normally, or GMT+10.5 in summer time
(which is now).  A half hour difference, but the headers show the time
flipping by 14 minutes, as well.  And, it's all on the same computer.

Locally, it was fetchmail getting mail from my host, dropping it into my
personal (local) mailbox, and I read it through dovecot on the same box.

Me either, I've made the same argument on other mailing lists, in the

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
