When you quote, can you please specify who you are quoting and when the 
quote is from? Like I did here:

"Am 14.11.22 um 22:45 schrieb Claus Dietrich:"

Otherwise it is difficult to follow the discussion.

Also please reply to a mail you are quoting instead of creating a new 
one with the same topic and pasting the quote inside the text. AFAICS 
you started four different threads with the same topic "CDate 
Documentation" by writing a new mail with the same topic.

When you reply instead, your email program creates an "In-Reply-To" 
header that allows different clients to sort your reply to the correct 
place in the thread.

Thank you!

Alles Gute
