Keep in mind that if you REPROCESS mail - manually unpack a mailbox into
your procmail filters, you should have some way to disable that particular
filter, or you'll hose yourself for it. Additionally, there are some
bright bulbs out there who run systems that are sometimes over a YEAR off
mark, so hopefully if you're filtering the messages, it's not to /dev/null,
and is perhaps at AFTER greenlist handling, if you do that sort of thing.
Not so long ago, someone contacted the webadmin of one of the sites I deal
with, and complained to them that the date on their webpage was seriously
wrong. The webadmin kindly pointed out to them that the webpage used
timezone, and that if it displayed anything goofy, it was the user's own
computer which was set wrong. IIRC, this reply was met with absolute silence.
