INTERNALDATE is stored in message's mtime with maildir. It's preserved
when COPYing a message to another mailbox. Whether it's preserved when a
client copies it between different IMAP accounts depends on the client -
APPEND command anyway supports INTERNALDATE parameter.
Evolution's "Received" field means the same as INTERNALDATE and I always
use it to order my messages. Works fine.
