It all depends on where that "Date:" header is being added.  If it's 
coming from the sender's end, then there's probably not much you can 
do to fix that, certainly not within Mailman (at least, not without 
making some source code changes).  If it's being added by your local 
MTA, then you should fix the timezone settings on that machine.

But since RFC 822 and 2822 specify the "Date:" header as being 
required for Internet messages, odds are pretty good that's coming 
from the remote end.
