      Yes. You could have run ntpd before the fiasco happened.

      Keeping accurate time is the system's responsibility, not the mail
      servers. If you computer has a defective system clock or suffers with
      serious clock drifts, you _should_ install ntpd. In your case you should
      use a combination of ntpdate and ntpd at startup.
