    Anyone else getting blank emails from Dec 31, 1969 ?

    Ever since I updated through VZ to 2.3, i've been having oddball issues.
    Here is one I havent seen on the forum yet.

    A couple of my yahoo email accounts show an email or two that are blank, it says No Subject, and the date is Dec 31, 1969
    If I goto a PC and login to my yahoo account, it's just a normal non-spam email. But all the other emails show up fine.

    Whats going on here?

    Just read online that Google has mastered electronic time travel. That email is the beta invite to the service.

    same problem here, Unix time epoch

    With my yahoo mail, some of the messages are showing in the built-in Message or Email app with no subject and a timestamp of December 31, 1969. If you look at the time and adjust to GMT time zone, you'll see that the time is actually midnight between Dec 31, 1969 and Jan 1, 1970. This is the beginning of Unix time. Unix time is the number of seconds since then. I wonder if this has anything to do with it. Maybe some emails have a corrupted header when downloaded from yahoo and it defaults to that time.

    Just open the email from your phone and it will show up as normal. Has happened to me before. I use to just delete them cause I thought it might be a virus but yea just open the email and it will show up as normal

    yeah, it takes a while to open them up but when you do it does show the entire email, except for the sender... so you can not reply

    If you can get the phone up to 88 M.P.H. you can reunite the phone and the email and while there invest in some good stock portfolios.......
