    Hello, I have recently encountered an anomaly that my tech support at work said is not possible. I sent an email to my supervisor on a Wednesday. It hit his inbox Thursday morning and the timestamp showed as the time he received it not the time I actually sent it. Is it not possible that this could possibly happen?

    My opinion is that it is possible (99.99% probable) that the tech support does not know enough about the details of the implementation of the email system to say whether it is possible or not.

    And I know nothing about the system, so can make no comment about the possibility of the scenario you describe.

    It can happen, but it's rare. I have had that issue here. Is it happening to just you/boss or others too?
