smtpmail.el sends mail without date header

When Rmail uses smtpmail.el, mail is sent without a date header.  This
is undesirable since the mail transport system isn't guaranteed to add
the header.

The configuration is:

(setq smtpmail-default-smtp-server "localhost")
(load "smtpmail")
(setq send-mail-function 'smtpmail-send-it)

A possible fix is:
