    "Date Received" in the Past

    Hi, I receive hundreds of spam emails per day. After starting to report them to SpamCop, I have noticed that every so often, I will receive a spam which "allegedly" arrived two or three days ago. Since I clear out junk email every day, an email which arrived two or three days ago would no longer exist for me to report. My thoughts on this are as follows: If a spammer knows about the fact that SpamCop doesn't process spam which is older than two days, then it would be in their interest to make it look like the spam arrives a lot earlier than it actually does. Effectively, they then have a kind of immunity... Is this at all possible? And if so, is it a known issue? Not looking for answers, just making an observation. --Excursus--
