In most mail systems (Web or Client) you can open the email and then select Properties or Headers. You can do this for Outlook and my web mail systems. I assume you can do this for Gmail.

Open the Gmail message and look for Properties or Headers. The information you want IS in the headers.

1. Open email.
2. At right, next to Reply arrow, pick Down arrow. Choose Show Original.
Scroll down to the Date: line

Maybe I don't understand the question.
Yes:  05:15 (-0800) (PST) = 13:15 (+0000) (UTC) = 08:15 (-0500) (EST)

Time zone offset: UTC itself appears as +0000; −0000 means the time zone essentially unknown.

To convert the date and time to your time zone, subtract any + time zone offset from the time and add any - time zone offset to the time (note if that means a different date), then add or subtract your own time zone's offset from UTC (noting the date again).

You can also use a time zone calculator http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/converter.html to easily compute the date and time for any place on earth.

Yes.  EST is -5 hours from UTC.
When we switch over to Daylight Savings time, you'll subtract four hours.  (ie EDT is -4).

Yes, that's right, except a few years ago, the US congress changed the dates we switch from April to March.
