All the dates of e-mails in Icedove are backwards at least in my boxes,
i.e., day-month-year, instead of year-month-day. Likewise, the times
are in 12 hour notation, followed by AM or PM.
My locale preferences in KDE are set as year-month-day and 24 hour time
and date formats. Apparently these settings apply only to KDE
applications, not user-wide.
Is there a way to set date and formats user-wide, even system-wide?
Otherwise, is there an extension to Icedove to set those formats for

time and date as search words, but was unsuccessful.

It is still not as flexible as I would like (being able to specify date
and time separately in one's own format of choice in a completely
arbitrary quote string would be better), but it does give the original
message date and time in an ISO standard format that is unambiguous.
