Re: [Cryptography] Satoshi Nakamoto Email Timestamps Disambiguation Request

The original Satoshi email has a "Date" header of Sat, 01 Nov 2008
02:10:00 +0800.  It was received by metzdowd.com at Fri, 31 Oct 2008
14:20:34 -0400 (EDT), then forwarded witihin metzdowd at Sat,  1 Nov 2008
19:15:33 -0400 (EDT).  This leaves a 10-minute "window" from the "Date" to
the first "Received", which lends credence to that timestamp.  The delay
from Oct 31 14:20 to Nov 1 19:15 is, most likely, a moderation delay.

Here is a snippet of the full email header (I left out the deliveries to
me, but the next header is the delivery from metzdowd to me at 19:15 EDT):

I'll note that there has been a significant amount of research done on the
timestamps of Satoshi's emails.
