Hi,

Add the following configuration in props.conf along with time stamp recognition.

Props.conf:

MAX_DAYS_HENCE = <integer> 

Sample configuration will look next 3 days,

MAX_DAYS_HENCE = 3

Maximum Integer value is 10950 (days).

Gothrough the following Links ,

The answer by @vasanthmss is a good one and the one I would have given (but he got there first). The answer assumes that it is correct and proper for you go get events "from the future" and so we are accommodating/allowing them. But perhaps that is not what you desire; are you trying to fix/prevent events from the future?
