SpamAssassin Rule: DATE_IN_PAST_06_12

Standard description: Date: is 6 to 12 hours before Received: date


The Date: header is checked against the timestamps in the Received: header lines. If the clock generating the Date: header is accurate then the mail was generated 6 to 12 hours before being received by one of the relays. This is unlikely in a normal mail client.
