SUMMARY

This article describes the following about this hotfix release:
  • The issues that are fixed by this hotfix package.
  • The prerequisites for installing the hotfix package.
  • Whether you must restart your computer after you install the hotfix package.
  • Whether the hotfix package is replaced by any other hotfix package.
  • Whether you must make any registry changes.
  • The files that are contained in the hotfix package.

SYMPTOMS

After you configure SQL Mail on your instance of SQL Server 2000, when you run the xp_readmail extended stored procedure to read the e-mail messages from your Microsoft SQL Server mail Inbox, the Date Received column in the output incorrectly displays the date and the time that the e-mail message was submitted by the sender instead of the date and the time that the e-mail message was received. You may notice that the values in the Date Received column in the output of the xp_readmail extended stored procedure are different from the values in the Received column in the Inbox of a mail client such as Microsoft Outlook.

Note The Date Received column in the output corresponds to the @date_received parameter of the xp_readmail extended stored procedure.
