I like this way of dating a lot. It is easy to grasp the short statements, and they are less monotonous than the all too predictable sequence of numbers in a "normal" date.
Yet, there are occasions when I want to find out when a message was sent precisely and in full. Fortunately, this is easy in Gmail as well.
Find Out When a Message Was Sent Exactly in Gmail
To identify a message's exact sending date and time in Gmail:
- Position the mouse cursor over the relative time or date displayed in Gmail.
- Wait for the exact date and time to display.
This works for any date in Gmail, in a message list or while viewing a conversation.
