My WordPress installations send emails with the Date header specified in UTC:

Date: Wed, 18 Jul 2018 15:18:50 +0000

I would prefer that the mail be sent with dates encoded in localtime, which is properly configured on the server, and in the Wordpress general settings to America/New_York.

I tried using the WP Mail SMTP plugin and configuring it to send mail through our SMTP server, but it did nothing to change the Date header.

How can I configure WordPress to send mail using the offset corresponding to my timezone?
