Hi Folks,
I sent myself an email to clarify this.
The sent items folder displays the correct time the email was sent at, but the inbox is nine hours behind. How do I fix this?

Hi kwaoc,

What happens if you send yourself an email using a webmail service like yahoo or hotmail ?

Check the timezone in your computer clock and check this location inside outlook
open outlook
go to tools --> options --> calendar options --> time zone

Make sure to note daylight saving time aswell.

Hi Sunray,
The idea using the time zone change in outlook fixed it. It also prompted me to make the changes with my clock.
As usual, excellent fix from yourself!
