[PLUG] Update: Can't See "Sent" eMail

Naturally, once I posted I discovered a major piece of data:  The messages are 
coming through into the Sent folder, but there is no date field, so they are 
going to the bottom of the message list, where I didn't see them.

For some reason, KMail is not including a date field when it sends eMail.  I 
can manually add headers, but don't see how I can force an actual date header 
into outgoing mails.   Postfix automatically will add any missing headers, but 
when IMAP saves to the Sent folder, postfix hasn't seen the message yet.   
This means the recipients of my messages get dates, but not my local copy.


Any ideas?
