Ok, thanks to both Anders & Ken for their kind responses.
I've done some more thorough investigation and am really puzzled wrt what is
going on. The initial debugging I'd done with the level 2 d00d at the hosting
provider had seemed to indicate that the nmh toolchain (perhaps) wasn't
inserting Date: into the outgoing message (i.e. when supplying the data
following issuing the DATA smtp command).
So I got myself libnet-smtp-server-perl and hacked up the example perl script
that instantiates a simple smtp server such that it'd echo to the terminal
whatever a smtp client sends it, and here's what I see..
> sudo /usr/local/bin/smtp-testing-server.pl
==================== inbound msg received ====================
X-Mailer: exmh version 2.7.2 01/07/2005 (debian 1:2.7.2-7) with nmh-1.1
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii

..so it looks to me like exmh+nmh is doing the right thing in terms of the
headers that it is inserting, and indeed, I did the
manually-telnet-to-the-smtp-server-thing, pasting the above message verbatim
into my dialog with the server (i.e. as the "value" for DATA), and it sent it
Additionally, I've figured out this morning that the server isn't objecting to
sending messages to other addresses at my own domain, so I'm thinking that they
have imposed some sort of anti-relaying policy on my account, even though I
explicitly asked the level-2 d00d about that and he said "nope".
So I'm not sure what's going on, but this is straying off-topic for this list.
thanks in any case,
