NOT. The MTA generates the Date: Header. I've now done this on one
machine running sendmail, and one running smail. In both cases, the
latest release of mutt goofs, while the latest release of elm and the
current /bin/mail do not. It's the MTA, not the MUA.

NOT. Mutt *IS* the problem.
I don't have a bogus TZ: it's EST5EDT.
Happy New Year!
