	Mailman 2.1.5 does not include a Date: header on the messages it 
sends out.  Since this header is required by the SMTP RFCs, it is up 
to the MTA to put an appropriate Date: header onto the outgoing 
message.  The server for your MTA must have an incorrectly set clock.

suitably configured.  There's some information at
