Unless you are referring to messages from majordomo itself, and not
the resend of the list being distributed, the date comes from the
inbound mail and majordomo has nothing to do with that stamp. If
you are saying the commands like zubscribe, unzubscribe, who, etc.
are getting weird time/date stamps, take a hard look at your OS,
the version of perl you are running and possibly even 1.94.4 as a
non-y2k compliant application. 1.94.5 was not released until Jan
of 2000, and even some of the tools like archive2 and digest still
need patched for y2k compliance. First and formost, I would blame
the messages coming into your list for the crazy date stamps. The
sender's Mail User Agent is responsible for setting this field
correctly, and even those have dependency on the system clock for
the tool they are using to get that data.
