I have a customer who is using X-Cart and is trying to setup thier site to send via my server using SMTP AUTH (using postfix).

The email is accepted, but the message as BAD HEADER 7 , Missing required header field: "Date". Indeed looking at the raw message in quarantine I can confirm there is no Date header.

While I could bodge around it and ignore BAD-HEADER-7, I'd prefer to fix the actual problem.

Its my opionion that the X-Cart software which is generating the email is responsible for adding a Date header, am I correct? Whenever I've sent emails via a PHP Script I've always added a Date header.
