Firefox and Thunderbird sees this the same. I think it just reflects the 
working week versus weekend, obviously there will be some corporate 
influence, but I think there's a lot of people who don't check their 
email over the weekend, and with mobile devices there may not need to be 
(e.g. I frequently don't have my laptop on at the weekend, if someone 
emails me I can check on my phone).
