Hi Ann --

How about the following?

"This message will look like the normal scheduled message, except
that its timestamp will differ."

When you say "will appear as any other message" , I'm assuming that you mean
it will have the same content, not that it uses the same display method (for
example, they both just pop up, rather than having to double-click an icon).
