Sounds like a time string handling problem, not so much a specific SMTP 
one. Do you use the Gambas date/time functions?

On New York time zone, you are 6 hours back to GMT, so the mail's date 
might be set to the day before somewhere on its way from Gambas' SMTP 
function through your Linux mailer down to your provider. Does your own 
computer run a BIOS clock on GMT with the system set to locale?

This is just a guess, maybe it's something completely different...
