RFC822 would be the appropriate one here, and it does impose some
restrictions regarding what can and cannot be a date header:


     5.1.  SYNTAX

     date-time   =  [ day "," ] date time        ; dd mm yy
                                                 ;  hh:mm:ss zzz

     day         =  "Mon"  / "Tue" /  "Wed"  / "Thu"
                 /  "Fri"  / "Sat" /  "Sun"

So it certainly looks like Orn needs to fix his mailer.
