All timezones correct - SENT shows +10hours


3 Domino 6.5 servers -   HEMMAIL1, COLMAIL1 and HANSCOLOMAIL1 (SMTP gateway).

I'm intimezone GMT +10hrs
All SMTP mail goes outward via the Gateway (HANSCOLOMAIL1)
Email sent from HEMMAIL1 arrives with the correct Received Time however the Sent Time is shown as ten hours ahead.
Email sent from COLMAIL1 shows the expected received and sent times.

I have checked the time, regional settings, notes.ini setting etc and all appear to be the same on the three servers.

I did notice a difference in the Timezone syntax in the header of email sentfrom the to servers  to gmail.

HEMMAIL1 shows 'ZE10' while COLMAIL1 shows '+1000' (nb COLMAIL display correct SENT time for recipient)

See attached GMAIL header comparison - from email sent from COLMAIL1 & HEMMAIL1

You are using SMTP routing internally. Domino to Domino communication should use NRPC (Notes Remote Procedure Call), which moves the message from server to server in Notes's own document format (almost as if you copied a message from a user sent folder into the of the target server). This will guarantee that the servers interpret the Notes time format of the PostedDate field correctly.

That MAY solve your problem if it is a weird MIME setting somewhere, or an SMTP time interpretation problem. However, it could still be a problem with either a) HEMMAIL1's time settings, or b) the time settings of the CLIENT that sent the message via HEMMAIL1.

Change client from Rich text to Mime corrected problem.

Further, HEMMAIL1 is using ScanMail for Domino - which caused the problem (Colmail1 Doesn')..
