E-Mail Notification - Incorrect UTC/GMT Offset during daylight savings time?

Recommended Posts

Running Retrospect Windows Singer Server v6.5.350 on Window 2003 Server Standard Edition.


Notification E-Mails Sent By Retrospect have incorrect UTC/GMT Offset during daylight savings.


RFC822 Date Header, for when message was created, has -0800 not -0700 from UTC/GMT as required for correct time display during PDT.


Daylight savings time is set in Windows date & time control panel.


Any Ideas how to correct/adjust/fix this in Retrospect?


Here is the RFC822 Header from a recent notification sent by Retrospect:

From - Tue Jun 29 07:17:53 2004

X-Mozilla-Status: 0001

X-Mozilla-Status2: 00000000

Return-Path: <XXXXXXXXXX>


by XXXX.XXX (CommuniGate Pro SMTP 4.1.6)

with ESMTP id 266102 for XXXXXXXXXXXXXX; Tue, 29 Jun 2004 02:18:41 -0700 <<<=== Correct!

Received: from SERVER ([]) by SERVER.XXXXXXXXXXX with Microsoft SMTPSVC(6.0.3790.0);

Tue, 29 Jun 2004 02:20:11 -0700 <<<=== Correct!

Date: Tue, 29 Jun 04 2:20:11 -0800 <<<=== WRONG UTC/GMT OFFSET for DATE field in header!!!

In the past this has occured primarily with Qmail. What mail server are you using? Do you have the same trouble when you use the external email notifiers for Retrospect?
