is this possible?

FYI I'm on the Demarc ( a snort IDS util) mailing list and I see a lot
of messages tagged as SPAM because of one simple issue... The timezone
stamp is wrong.  It's +1600.  I suspect it has something to with their
list server or the way it's moderating the messages.  Has anyone else
seen this on any other lists that they're on?

ok, one last thing im not sure about..

Im currently running mailscanner(latest version) and latest 2.0+ code of
spamassassin. Im not sure if i have something configured wronge.
Basically i have /root/.spamassassin/user_prefs which has one thing
defined (required
hits) and i have that set to 7. Then in etc/mail/spamassassin/ i
have a full blown file (the one from the spamassassin
FAQ) and it seems to tag ALOT of mail, especially from mailing lists as
spam. Was wondering if im doing something wronge and if anyone else is
running similar to how i am.
