Messages don't always get sent if computer's date isn't right

I've found that if my computer's date is off by more than some unknown 
amount, when I send a message it doesn't always really get sent. Yet I 
don't get an error indication, and the message appears in my Sent folder 
right along with the rest of my sent messages.

Anyone know how much my computer's date can differ from true time before 
this problem appears?

Some of my messages to newsgroups had their dates off by two years, but 
still got posted.

A few minutes ago, I sent two eamils to myself, one with my computer set 
to September 28, 2009 (one month error) and the other with the computer 
set to August 28, 2010 (one year error).  Both appeared in my Inbox, 
with the correct time and the erroneous dates.

I appreciate any insights.

It might be a mail server filtering them. Spam messages often use
wildly inaccurate dates to make them appear at the top or bottom of
the inbox (since many people sort by date).

This is almost certaily caused by spam filtering, most likely
by the recipient or their mail service provider.

Each mail service provider has their own rules for identifying incoming spam.
I would suggest you ask the recipient to ask their mail service provider.

Some news servers would have reject the posting, others would not.

Your own mail service provider is not using the same spam-filtering rules
as another recipient's mail service provider.
