Sent_on should default to now

Reported by Joel Chippindale | May 5th, 2009 @ 09:38 AM

Sent_on should default to now in ActionMailer.

Currently it has no default. If you don't set sent_on then your mail will be sent without a date header. This has unpredictable results because although most mail server will insert a date header (defaulting to now) when the date header is missing not all will do so.

Defaulting to follows the principle of least surprise.
