Sorry, for popping in late. Just from memory. The time stamp of a mail
is supposed to be equivalent on the server and on the local maildir. It
is not supposed to be the download date, but is set to the date of the
mail message, if I remember correctly (without having looked at the
code). So it should not happen that we have an older timestamp on either
the server or the local message, right?

Again, this is just from memory. Sorry, if I am wrong.
