I have a SBS 2003 server .All email messages xent from this server have a timestamp in the email with the time and date. the Time is off. The time shows 2 hours prior to the actual time of the email. if I send the email at 6:00 am, the timestame on the email shows 4:00am. How can I change this timestamp feature. FYI. all messages that are inbound have the correct timestamp and the system clock seems to be correct.

    The time stamp is created by the RECEIVING server.  So if you are sending to another time zone the time will be different.

    My time zone was wrong. I checked it and the system clock. It is fixed now and I really feel dumb.
