  | I dunno ... I mean, do you care about the date an email was sent _in the
  | sender's timezone_?  Or do you care about the date an email was sent
  | in _your_ timezone?

You might care about both - the "how long ago was it sent" type of use
needs local, the "please reply before 7pm", or "I need a reply business hours
today" type of use needs the sender's timezone (and perhaps the local one
as well).  There is no one right answer (which is why I like exmh's solution
- though on looking more, I see it doesn't do that if the sender's zone
is +0000 - that's probably a bug, for -0000 there's nothing t be done,
except display whatever it says, but +0000 should have the local equiv
time put there as well).
