Exchange 2003 sp2, server 2003 sp1.  I use outlook 2003 as my client.  When I recieve an email, where does the time come from?  My exchange server or the sending server?

The sent time stamp is from the side of origination....and actually from the email client versus the server I believe.

You get two times in Outlook.

You get the received time which is the time it was received by the Exchange server in the mailbox, then you get the sent time when you open the message - this comes from the SMTP headers. In some cases they will be the same, but a difference is not unusual.

So, the time in the SMTP header is set by the outgoing server, not the outgoing clients outlook right?  The reason I'm asking is they changed Daylight Saving Time where I live so I have a lot of users getting emails with the wrong time sent.  Just wanted to make sure nothing on my side.

Yes, that's correct...I was wrong in my original assumption...the outgoing server that accepts the original email sets the 'sent' time stamp.
