[don't quite have the bits to build a patch right now...]

If you find the line near the bottom of Message.py which has:-

    def SetDate(self, date=time.ctime(time.time())):

and modify it to something like:-

    def SetDate(self, date=time.strftime("%a, %d  %b  %Y %H:%M:%S %z", 

[which has probably wrapped on mail send :-( ]

BTW the %z might be a GNU library special - not sure what other 
strftimes have.  Also if you use gmtime rather than localtime you may 
see some very odd behaviour - at least I do during the first hour after 
midnight each day during DST.
