I hope someone can help me with a solution to this one.

Description:

     1.  I have a pop3 account on a website hosted at Godaddy.com
     2.  I am using the Godaddys webmail interface to send
          e-mails when I am have no access to my computer.
     3.  Since Outlook will only download from the mail server inbox.
          After sending an email, using webmail, I will transfer it in to
          my inbox (on the mail server).  NOTE: At this point it shows
          the correct date/time stamp on the mail server.
     4.  Once I have access to my computer, I use Outlook 2003
          (fully updated to the latest) to download my e-mails from
          the mail server, Outlook will stamp the incoming emails
          with the current date/time.  Note: This will apply only to
          emails I sent using the mail server webmail program.

This specific issue started after I upgraded from Outlook 2000 to 2003.   My OS (win2k) as well as office have all the latest updates.   Also, the calendars time zone option is properly set.

ANY IDEAS HOW TO FIX IT?

I believe you're using an ancient protocol called POP3. There might have been bugs in Outlook that is now corrected. Stop using POP, use IMAP at the least. Most ISP's never advertise that they support IMAP. I always try pop.domain.com as IMAP in the Outlook settings, if that does not work I try imap.domain.com. Give it a try and get rid of the pop .. it's history now
