    I’ve seen that trick from spammers for years. It makes their mail rise to the top of an inbox that’s usually sorted by date. There should be an RFP that says SMTP servers should bounce any email that is pre-dated for more than 24 hours (so that time zones don’t become an issue).

    Technically, though, that date is in the body of the message, not in the header, so I doubt that they will ever do somethnig to prevent it. I have a rule that puts pre-dated mail in the spam folder. It keeps the garbage from forever staying at the top of my inbox.
