You can set whatever Date: header content you like, although the timestamps from any relaying servers will be outside your control and some antispam systems consider an incorrect date as suspicious.

Checking his name, hack3rcon, and the idea that he wants to send the mail at 4 but have the headers all show it was received at 3pm rather than 4 or later (when it was sent) makes me wonder at the legitimacy of his question.

OP what is the purpose of this exercise? And, did I sum it up right, you want to send an email at a time but make it appear as if it was sent at some other time?

I guess that if I change my Email Setting Time and System time it will be OK.

A valid question and one that definitely should have been asked by the first responder.

Know then that "hack3rcon" is a legitimate LQ member. But unfortunately one who will rarely post questions containing enough nfo to go on, let alone an account of what he has tried himself.
