Rant: Outlook doesn't know what day it is. Today does not equal Yesterday!

Share/Save/Bookmark
I use Microsoft Outlook as one of my email clients. It actually works quite well for what I need and want out of it. Much as I am a fan of Mozilla, and not of Microsoft, Thunderbird doesn't quite have all the functionality that I use in Outlook for this email account.

One of the features that I use regularly in Outlook is Search Folders. You can set up your own criteria of what messages to show in the folder, and they also include some default ones.

The problem is, sometimes the first time in the day I click on Received Today or Received Yesterday, it shows messages from the wrong day! I can click it over and over again, open another folder and come back, but in the folder for today it will only show messages from yesterday.

Luckily there is an easy workaround. Here's what I do:

The folder will refresh with messages using the correct criteria.

Fail Level: Annoying
