Thunderbird not displaying correct dates on emails

Anyone had this problem!
Cant find anything on google or mozillazine regarding this, but basically the date of emails is missing the month and displays the date like this:

14/M/2011

Have you checked the date on your server and client

If they had outlook express, there would be not need for Thunderbird.

If you have another email program, e.g. Windows Live Mail - maybe try and see if this does the same.

It might have something to do with the config editor, under Tools/Options/Advanced. I once followed instructions so TB loaded images automatically on all mail. Not sure if this is where you can control dates or not.
