Questions and Answers
 Why does Outside In not format dates in MSG files according to the Windows system settings, similar to how Microsoft Outlook would display these date values?
 If there is no way for Outside In to detect the system settings on Windows, or I am not on a Windows platform, is there another way to force Outside In to display dates in a different date order?
 How can I make Outside In display the date in a time zone other than GMT?
 Is there a list of known bugs related to MSG date formatting?
