RFC 2822::
The standard email format as described by RFC 2822, for example
`Thu, 07 Apr 2005 22:13:13 +0200`.
ISO 8601::
Time and date specified by the ISO 8601 standard, for example
`2005-04-07T22:13:13`. The parser accepts a space instead of the
`T` character as well. Fractional parts of a second will be ignored,
for example `2005-04-07T22:13:13.019` will be treated as

In addition to recognizing all date formats above, the `--date` option
