If you have control of the MTA at, you should check out
its configuration and the format of the Received header it adds.

I'll see about beefing up MHonArc to handle this case better (either
skipping the header and using the next received header, and if there
is not another received header, check the next field specified in
DATEFIELDS).  Also, I'd like to add the ability so you can specify
which Received field to use.  For example:


This says to check the second Received first (index numbering starts
at 0), then the first Received then date.  The following
are equivalent: received[0] === received.

I can actually use this type of feature for my local archives where
I prefer to use the date the message was received by my ISP's server
and not when I download it to my system.
