Outlook shows wrong time on received email

OutlookWebmailHi,
  I have a weird situation.
  When this user's Outlook 2003 receives an "Internet Email", it shows the time about two hours later time. So for example if he gets an email at 1:03PM on 12/8/2013, his Outlook shows that the email was received at 3:05PM on 12/8/2013.

  His Outlook is connected to Exchange Server 2003 (as a part of SBS2003) and he pulls "Internet Email" from POP3 server on local ISP mail server. When I logged into this POP account on the web, right after I sent him a test email, it shows the correct time.

 But when is OUTLOOK pulls an email from his POP account on the ISP mail server, it shows wrong time.
 When another user in the same office/network sends him an email, time matches up.
 No one in the office is having this problem like he does. Everyone's Outlook is connected to the same SBS2003 and gets Internet email via POP account. In user's Outlook, there are two accounts: Exchange (Primary) and POP account.

 If this problem is originated from ISP mail server, then it should affect other users as well, but that is not the case.

Thanks.

Did you verify the timezone settings on the computer? If this is an older machine you may need to run windows updates to correct DAY settings.

Yes I have checked the time zone on his computer and also within his Outlook. They all match - EST.

Webmail System time does not match with Email timeOutlook shows the same time as Webmail System timeI think the problem is on ISP mail server.
I just created another user account in my Outlook 2003 on personal computer in my network.  As you can see, webmail screen on left shows Sunday 4:16PM.
In outlook, it also shows 4:16PM.

I have reported this problem to ISP and wait for their response.
I will keep you posted.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Could you check the internet header of received email. It will give some info about email route and time

That is exactly what is happening. I have already send an email to ISP tech support regarding the issue.

Sorry for late reply.
A few weeks ago, ISP fixed the problem. After that, I saw correct time on web-based mail as well as in Outlook.
