Connectivity logs and Message Tracking logs in Microsoft Exchange 2010 are 5 hours off
Posted on 2012-09-11
Yesterday I noticed that some email was received in Outlook with a Sent time of 5:54 am and not received until 12:54 pm, which is 7 hours. Today I am not seeing this difference, but when I went to the Connectivity and Message Tracking logs, it shows that the times are 5 hours later than the actual time. For example, I sent an email from yahoo to my Exchange mail account at 9:46 am today. Outlook shows it is sent and received at 9:46 am, but the Connectivity log and the Message Tracking log shows a time of 14:46, which is 5 hours off. How does this happen? Is there a way to set Exchange log times? Or is there some kind of an "Exchange clock"?
