Description

Running Thunderbird 102.7.2 and have configured Date and Time Formatting to Application locale: English (United Kingdom) however dates are only expressed in US format MM/DD/YY not DD/MM/YY which is the normal format in the UK.

If possible it would be nice to have YY/MM/DD supported.

I played with it a bit and I found that for my locale it works as expected, while for English (GB) language and English (United Kingdom) data/time format it works as you describe. Is it possible that this is an upstream Thunderbird issue? Do you have a chance to try it on another platform to confirm it works there?

I have checked the same Thunderbird version on Linuxmint and Windows and both are displaying English (GB) date/time format correctly DD/MM/YYYY HH:MM:SS
