This method isn't foolproof, just effective. It would generally not
work well for most people in businesses to permanently change their
system clock just to spoof some software. All their emails would have
the wrong dates and for most businesses, this would not be an option.
People can always find a way around something like this. This method
works well and defeats the semi-serious spoofer who might temporarily
change the system clock or delete or change a prefs file.
If you don't think this is a useful method, uh, don't use it. :-)
