There's the problem, I had a spammer sending me junk backdated about a year,
and set up a filter to pass anything that is older then 300 days when
delivered off as spam, and pipe it through ricochet (
http://vipul.net/ricochet/ )

For some reason the date header didn't get seen, and kmail gave it a default
date.

Also, the filter to put the vox and vox-tech messages was *after* the spam 
filters. Had it been before like it should have been, there wouldn't have a 
problem.

This it the first time in the 2 months i'd had that filter there's been a
problem, but just in case, I set things up so i need to manualy pipe my spam
through ricochet to avoid this in the future.

This has been CC'd to all addressed somplaints were sent to.
