OK.  Here is my situation.  We use Imail 8.0 on a Windows server 2003 machine.  All clients on our network are Windows 2000, or XP running Outlook 2003.  Ever since the DST changes a few weeks ago, ALL of our mail is incorrectly time stamped, and appearing as if it came from an hour in the future.

I ran all appropriate patches on ALL network machines to fix DST time zone information.

I have also verified the following:
Time and Time Zone on mail server is correct.
Time and Time Zone on all client mashines is correct.
Time and Time Zone on firewall and network swithces is correct.
Time and Time Zone on junkmail filter is correct.

This happens on internal mail and external mail.

I do not know where else to look.

I tried this, but it only appears to affect appointments and not mail.

Time stamp on emails are the result of your mail server.  Reset the time on mail server. Change it to another time. Then change it back to the correct time. Restart the mail server.

Well, War1, that was a partial solution.  it only worked when I changed the time zone, restarted, changed the time zone back to the original, and restarted once more.  It didn't work for me by just changing the TZ, then changing it back, and then restarting--but u get the points anyway.

thanks
