issues with MTA's timestamp

Hello,

I found if peer MTA's timestamp is too much different from my end, the
messages may not be displayed.

for example, when you try to sign up to apache projects' mailing list,
like one of this page:

<a href="https://flink.apache.org/community.html" title="https://flink.apache.org/community.html">https://flink.apache.org/community.html</a>

The response message's (for user to confirm) timestamp is 12 hours ahead
of me.

Thus some email servers won't display the response messages correctly
(even no response messages appear in the inbox).

At least GMX's mail servers have this issue, as well as web.de. anyone
can test for it.

Can you give some suggestion?

Thanks.:)

Are you sure4 you didn't forget to compare timezones?

correctly?

that may be a spam filter, messages too ahead get some score.
But that's outside of postfix scope.
