I have a machine with Outlook 2003 that is having an unusual problem.  Any e-mail message that comes into the inbox has a time of exactly 1 hour earlier than the actual time it was received.  The mail account is MS Exchange account.  However, no other users on the domain are experiencing this problem.  It is machine specific because I tried logging on as a different user and setting up their Outlook profile, with the same results.  I have verified that the time zone is correctly set in Windows, and the correct time displays in tray.  I have also verified that the time is set correctly in the bios of the PC.  Any ideas?  This one has me stumped.

Greetings, hardwyre !

The time could be affected by Time Zone or Daylight Savings time. To set the time zone

When you first install and run Outlook, Outlook uses the same current time zone and daylight saving time setting as the Microsoft Windows® operating system. You can change the current time zone and daylight saving time in Outlook as follows:

   1. On the Tools menu, click Options.
   2. On the Preferences tab, click Calendar Options.
   3. Under Advanced Options, click Time Zone.
   4. Choose a time zone from the drop-down list, and then click OK.

To adjust for daylight saving time, select the Adjust for daylight saving time check box.
