Followup about cryptic error

I found the message that caused the MHonArc hang (at least deleting it
solved the problem), and the header was:

The last line is weird, but changing it to something like 

Date: Fri, 31 May 1996 08:32:23 -0500

didn't solve the problem. In any case, the error message

"Reading /export/home/silvert/spool/czm .....Day out of range 1..31 in"

didn't give me much to go on in spotting the problem.

I finally removed the first "Received:" line and that did it. Was it the
extra space in front of the 3 in "June   3", or the lack of a newline?
In any case, it wasn't very friendly about it!
