It depends on your locale settings how applications from Mozilla.org
(Firefox, Thunderbird etc.) display the date. If you prefer ISO-8601
format, use the special locale named "en_DK". For example, UTF-8
users may set "LC_TIME=en_DK.utf8; export LC_TIME" before running
Mozilla.org applications. If you only want to change date format
in Thunderbird I'd recommend a shell alias or a small wrapper script.

See also http://kb.mozillazine.org/Date_display_format for further
details. (You'll find a lot of cool tips & tricks in MozillaZine.)

	Hope it helps ... Andreas
