Received time on messages is 12 hours in future

Post by mf_scott » Thu Sep 25, 2008 12:37 am

The time written in the message headers for received mail is for some reason showing 12 hours in the future. I've checked the server time, and it is correct, but for example, a message that just came in on 9/24/2008 at 7:29:43 PM had the following header:

Received: from ([127.0.0.1]) with MailEnable ESMTP; Thu, 25 Sep 2008 07:29:42 -0500

We're currently running a pickup event script to rewrite this line in the header with the correct time, and that fixes the problem for everything except messages that are forwarded to another mailbox. Those still show up as 12 hours in the future because the Postoffice Connector writes a header after the pickup script is run.

Any suggestions?

(EDIT: forgot to mention, we're running 3.14 Enterprise)

Hi,

Please upgrade to version 3.53 as there have been changes in this area that may be contributing to the problem.

Well, the upgrade did not fix the problem, but it did change the time info that is listed in the diagnostic report:

Current Local Time: 09/26/08 06:00:19
Current Time (GMT +/- Offset): Fri, 26 Sep 2008 18:00:19 -0500


So, does anyone know where the second time listed (Current Time) is configured or how it can be altered?

Hi,

The "Current Time (GMT +/- Offset)" is taken from the windows date/time - time zone settings.
