Another option open to you is to hack the file that puts in the headers 
(CookHeaders.py?) and add a "Date" header.
Something like...

  import time

     date = msg.getheader('date')
     if date is None:
            date = time.ctime(time.time())
            msg['Date'] = date
# this is just an example and probably won't work, but it's close.
