[Mailman-Users] No date header on outgoing mail

I've just set up Mailman on a Linux box using Qmail as the MTA, but am 
running into a problem with the date header on Mailman-generated mail 
(subscribe info, etc.).  Mailman does not add a date header, and qmail 
does not add a date header on mail received via SMTP - only sendmail. 
 This causes the date in my mail client (Mozilla) to be displayed as 
12/31/69.  This seems to be more a fault of Mailman than Qmail - the MUA 
(in this case Mailman) should add the date, not the MTA.  I could tell 
Mailman to use the Sendmail delivery, though I do not want to because of 
the security issues mentioned.  What other options do I have?  Is there 
a configuration item I'm missing, or will this need to be changed in the 
code?  Thanks in advance.
