i notice that in 2010.1 in Kmail, this whole thread is grouped for date 
"Unknown" which is listed above "Today".

There is definately a date header, that doesn't seem to be the problem. It 
would be interesting to find out what is different between this and the other 

something about dates in the future when delivered? or something?
