We have some users, including me seeing some email that say are received at 1pm today, but showing a sent time as 1:30am tomorrow.

To me it looks like a time on a server is off.

I checked the header of the email and it shows all the correct time. Not showing any time with a date of tomorrow.

Any thoughts where to look for this?

We are running exchange 2007 and outlook 2007,2003,2010 clients.

I checked some of the exchange servers and the time looks fine. Especially the server the users sending the emails are on.

Sent from where? Internally? Externally? Internet user?

It is a timezone setting probabaly but where is another matter. Depends on source of email.

So acc to you, the external emails dont have this time issue..
Programs like Outlook, Outlook Express, Thunderbird and so on all use Windows to determine the time, date and time zone.
Make sure all settings are correct.
Go to Date and time properties , in the Internet time tab Uncheck and check the Automatic syncronize with Internet time server option.

I had the same issues in exch2010. The owa settings differs from the client outlook settings.
So the timesettings were good on the server and client, but within the owa screen of the same client the timezone was not good. See options in owa.

Maybe it helps... Cause nobody tells you to pay attention for those settings.
Good luck
