Time Stamp is not correct

My outlook 2003 puts the incorrect time stamp on received messages.  For instance, when I send a message, the correct time is stamped on the sent message.  However, when I receive a message, the time stamped is 1 hour off.  It is 1 hour earlier than it actually is.  I have checked the time zone settings and everything is correct.  Also, something that is weird is the fact that my outlook syncs with my smart phone and the time stamped on the same message shows the correct time??  Also the webmail version of my email shows the correct time, thus there must be something not set correct in Outlook.  Also, when I check the day light saving box in outlook it sets the clock on my OS to an hour ahead of what it actually is??  Can anyone help?

Hi Donkey_26,

Can you check the Time Zone for Outlook?

Click on Tools ~  Options.
Click on the Preferences
Click Calendar Options.
Click Time Zone.
Choose a time zone from the drop-down list, and then click OK.

cheers,
frankco

Hello,

Yes the time zone is set for GMT -05:00 Eastern Time (US and Canada).  This is the correct time zone for my location.  However I just figured it out!  Like I had said in my original post, when ever I went into the Time Zone Setting for Outlook, I had noticed that the "Adjust For Daylight Savings" was not checked.  When I would check it adjusted the time on my OS an hour ahead.  So This time I decided to allow outlook to do that, then I went to the calander and time setting for the OS and ajusted it back to the correct time.  I checked outlook and the kept all the settings in the Time Zone Settings, and now everything works correct!
