The Date header is the time when the mail was sent, not when you started
to write it. You're giving away this information without user knowledge.
The fact, IMHO, is that there's no reason to give away these
information, which are not _very_ sensitive but in certain environments
could be relevant, and the main fact is that this is a
evolutions-specific thing, which user doesn't know about at all.

This is the only standard I could find [1]:
   msg-id          =   [CFWS] "<" id-left "@" id-right ">" [CFWS]
   id-left         =   dot-atom-text / obs-id-left
   id-right        =   dot-atom-text / no-fold-literal / obs-id-right

Each client does what it wants basically. Most of them use random
things.

Given there are no additional dependencies, the length could be shorten
and simply increases the security, I don't see why you wouldn't put it
in. But you are the developers, and you decide...

Byebye!
