Note the change between this message's header and that of the
previous message you sent. Instead of the hub machine adding
header, the local machine added that
header. You can tell because the local machine's name
appears there instead of the hub's name.
header was also added locally, but
there is nothing to indicate that fact.
header should be added locally
to accurately reflect the posting date of the message. If
you didn't supply a
header, instead allowing the
hub to supply it, and the hub were down for
a while, that header would be inaccurate by the
amount of time the hub was down.
