I'm sorry because it is not good at English.

It is likely to be displayed in this time order of the stamp, now.

When the pipermail file is copied, the time stamp will only have to be 
changed by some methods. 
(The tool to change the time stamp of the pipermail file is not 
prepared in Namazu. )

No. The user must change the time stamp. 

However, if the field sorting of the UTC is used without using sorting 
at a standard date, the time stamp need not be changed. 

It might be easy and be good to use the UTC field sorting in case of
