MTA's won't and probably should not sort message, MUA's should be able
to sort on received time. Evolution allows this, I use it this way
probably for the same reason the OP is trying to change the date.
As another poster wrote, changing the date on a message is not really a
good idea. Sorting messages on date/time received should achieve what
the user is trying to do.
