My record for email receipt was 3 years. I remember thinking, when requesting it to be resent (as hadn't arrived, "I bet they never sent it" :(

Time is calculated and stored as the number of seconds since epoch which is midnight of Jan 1st 1970. Looks like the email header got corrupted during transit to your inbox and the date was set to null or 0, which when translated relative to your time zone will be a few hours before epoch.

Sorry, this is no blast from the past. This is more of a f**t from the present ;-)
