Emails with fake send dates

I use Comcast for my Internet with Thunderbird for my email. For the last couple months I have been getting at least 4 or 5 emails a week with send dates in July of 2021. Initially I thought there was some glitch in the mail program. However yesterday I received an email dated 7/6/2021 with the subject "Renewal by Andersen Black Friday Savings!" While I'm not sure what the point would be, it appears the emails have artificial send dates. Thoughts/suggestions? Thank you.

I've had some of those recently. They are sent by spammers. You discover a new message in folder, so need to find it and you think it was sent ages ago, so how did you miss it. It is just yet another trick preying on your curiosity to try to get you to click on it and open it etc. In the email source the FRom Date will be probably today, but the con man has played with the 'Date' which is used in the header display.

Same as getting emails that are apparently not sent to you. Or emails about McAfee which has expired and they have cleverly separated almost all the content into a bunch of letters so you cannot set a filter eg: Mc and Af and ee

Just set it as Junk.
