Processing POP Dates

Dates returned by (in the column) cannot be used with ColdFusion date functions as is, they need to be converted into valid date time objects. To do this, use the ParseDateTime() function, and set the second (optional) parameter to “POP”. (Applies to: ColdFusion 3 or later)

    WHEN: is "26 Dec 2005 19:23:12 -0000"
    AND I TRY:
    ParseDateTime(, "pop")
    "26 Dec 2005 19:23:12 -0000" is an invalid date or time string.
    That’s the date of an email I received from
    AS you see it is missing the date of the week. If I manualy add "Mon," at the begining, it will be ok.
    What do you think is the best way to deal with these kind of emails?
