Hi Adam,

Unfortunately not at this time, you'll have to filter the message out. 
Depending on who creates it, you either need to add a rule to the 
logcheck-ignore lists if it's a logcheck mail, or if it's a cron mail, by 
adding something like

  2>&1 | grep -v '^check_date: news\.virginmedia\.com:'

to your cron line after fetchnews.

I've put a note in my TODO to allow disabling this warning for 1.11.7.

It's probably best to tell virginmedia to fix their server clock and have 
them use NTP (or disable the panicgate in their ntpd configuration), since 
offset clocks also affect article expiry on the upstream server.
