Microsoft Outlook - "Beyond Next Month"

The other day Microsoft Outlook 2003 did an odd thing... Typically, when I look at the "Sent Items" folder, messages are divided into groups by the time period sent. There are usually headers like "Today" and "Yesterday" and "Last Week".

But now everything fell under the header of "Beyond Next Month". How amazing, I thought! Outlook knows about emails I haven't even sent yet.

As it turns out, I had accidentally changed the Windows clock earlier in the day; it had been bumped forward a year. When I set the system clock back to today's date, everything went back to normal.



So much for telling the future.

Did you find any reason for this? Every date\hour is correctly set on my computer... and only two sent messages are dated as "Beyond Next Month".

Edit Year is OK!

The first step is to check your date and time in the bottom right. If you already fixed your date, the most common mistake is to have the year wrong.
