Hi everyone,
I have a question. I'm testing Proxmox Mail Gateway and so far I'm very happy with the product. I noticed that, if for some reason there is an email queue, when I force the delivery in "administration - queues - flish queue" .. the emails are delivered but with the date/time of the flushing and not the original time of the email. I hope I explained myself clear. Anyone have and idea how to make it possibile to keep the original date/time when flushing?

Thank you for your help!
* I'm not sure I understand your request completely - if there is a mail in the queue, it has not been delivered yet - it is delivered when you flush the queue (and the receiving mailserver accepts the mail)?
* Also the Date: header in the mail is not touched by PMG (or most other MTAs).

Please post the (anonymized) mail-logs of the systems and explain which date/time you want to keep/change
