(Node.js) Set the Email Date Header to the Current System Date/Time

Demonstrates how to set the Date header field of an email to the computer's current date/time. Note: When an email object is instantiated, the Date header field is automatically added and initialized to the current system date/time. The need to explicitly set the Date header could arise when loading an email from a .eml.
