   I'm surprised that squirrelmail even looks at the time in the mbox From_ 
   line. I'd expect it to use the time in the message's Date: header.

If you ask squirrelmail to do anything except sorting by date, it will
display the value of the Date header in the table.  If you ask it to
sort by date, it is sorting by received date.  It queries imap for
INTERNALDATE and uses and displays that.  Imap returns the INTERNALDATE
from the separator, annotating it with +0000, which is in this
particular case incorrect.  It would be better to use the Delivery-Date
header, but maybe not all implementations have that.

I'm not sure who is at fault here.  Imap is returning information that
is incorrect, but there's not any way for it to know what timezone is in
the separator line.
