Re: Email Digests - Important change to Email Alerts

The date stamp on the "Email Digest" is a day out. I just received today's Email Digest and it gave the date for the post I made today on the Cook Strait pelagic as "Sun May 15, 2016 12:28 pm". Is there a way to correct this, Neil?

Fyi, I've just received yesterday's Email Digest a second time with the same incorrect date and time stamp, but this time the content of the email included the following script at the start of the message:

<h2 style="color:#000000">Table of contents</h2>
<p><a href="#skip">Skip to content</a></p>
<div class="content"><table>
<tbody>
<tr>
<th id="j1">Msg ID</th><th id="j2">Private Message Subject</th><th
id="j3">Sender</th><th id="j4">Date</th>
</tr>
<tr><td colspan="4">You have no new or unread private
messages.</td></tr></tbody></table>
<br /><table>
<tbody>

<th id="h1">Post ID</th><th id="h2">Forum</th><th id="h3">Topic</th><th

Thanks for the heads up. That must have been my mistake. I changed the delivery time for the digests going to the yahoo group to lunch time, as I thought that would be more useful to those people than 7pm. It appears I bumped something else in the process.
Sorry about the mess.

As for the displayed time issue, I believe I have the solution but can't implement it until home tonight.

Thanks Neil, it's not a big deal - I just assumed you'd want to know.

Times were right today. Everything else was wrong. Will work on it.
