How do you see that OP's Emacs is talking directly to the server?  I
don't see anything in his report which would indicate that; did I miss
something?

Anyway, even if Emacs is the MTA (e.g., via smptmail.el), it inserts
the Date header behind the scenes, so the answer to the OP's question
whether he should add that header to his mail before sending still
stands, I think.
