Wrong time on mail servers

God knows how many times this has cropped up, but still not all the servers have the correct time. Extract from some mail headers:

The time on ptb-cgirelay01.plus.net is obviously well out.

2 very obvious reasons for that...

1) Yours is an incoming message, Jelv's is an outgoing one

2) ptb-cgirelay01.plus.net is an outgoing mail server which is never used for incoming mail.
