Email time stamp from Terminal Server Session

By chris.lambert ·
Hi all,

Have a strange one here.

I have just set up a Terminal Server on a Windows Server 2k machine. Everything works fine for the login and apps, apart from a strange e-mial problem. Office 2003 is installed.

Every time an e-mail is sent it's arrival time stamp is an hour before it is sent. ie sent at 11:07 received at 10:07.

I have checked the times on the Server, within the Session and on the local machine where the connection is started from and they all show the correct time.

The e-mails are being sent via an external SMTP server, but if an e-mail is sent from Outlook 2003 on one of the laptops it has the corect time stamp when it arrives.

This is driving me crazy as every thing looks correct.

Any ideas

Many thanks in advanced

Time zone?

You did say that you checked the time on the TS, but didn't say if you checked the time ZONE?

Yep, time zones checked as well, along with the Outlook setting.

Find a solution yet?

I'm encountering the same problem for one system on my network (exchange 2003, office 2003, winxp workstation). The other ~100 machines aren't showing any problems like this.

Were you able to find a solution?

EDIT(6/26/07 2:42PM EDT):
It turns out that this is caused by disabling DST on the machine and setting the time offset to show a different time in the systray without changing the timezone.

Outlook will continue to use the default offset for the timezone and display the time incorrectly.

You can change the offset without changing the timezone through WMI.
