Why Does Calibre Send Me Yesterdays Paper?

Hi Peoples,

This is my first post, on the forum (from which I have found many helpfull answers already - so many thanks!) and I was wondering if anyone could shed any light on why Calibre insist on sending me Yesterdays news paper.

Allow me to fill in the details -

I am using a Mac and I have a Kindle 3.
I set up Calibre 0.7.44 to download The Age (an Australian paper) at 6am
I set my myaddress@free.kindle.com to auto send

I sat back and waited with glee for my paper each morning...

Now what happens is that kindle ends up with the same paper that I got yesterday, when I check my computer it has downloaded the right paper, but for some reason sent me the old one?

If anyone could make any suggestions I would be forever indebted.

Its possible your kindle is putting the new papaer into the archived items by mistake, look in there.

Thanks for you help,

But I have since discovered that calibre is sending me the right Paper, but the kindle's date is a day behind so the paper is tagged with yesterdays date.

So now I just need to work out how to fix the date on my kindle and everything is perfect.

This is exactly the same problem i am having but in reverse - you are ahead of GMT so you get yesterday's date, i am behind GMT so i get tomorrow's date. My initial testing shows this only happens when you sync via the free.kindle.com email address - it doesn't happen when you sync via USB. I believe this is still a timestamping problem on the MOBI that Calibre generates, but i haven't had time to fully test it yet. See here and my other linked thread for more discussion.
