Outlook Problems

  1. I am having a problem with my Outlook 2003. I sent myself a test email and it comes back immediately like it is supposed to, however, it says 12:30 am, 6/1/08 when I sent it at 11:30 pm, 5/30/08.
    Does anybody know what causes this problem or how to fix it?

    Check your PC time/date properties. Then check the next tab - time-zone. Either may be wrongly set, is someone playing games with you? Also check the internet time tab, where you may (unknowingly), be synchronising to an internet time server.

    Alternatively, it may depend upon your ISP, whose server may be completely wrong. Yet another factor is that NTFS file times are held in international time and date format, and then translated for viewing by your local time zone and daylight saving time settings. This can cause havoc with data you must synchronise between NTFS and FAT32 based data storage media, as the fall out of sync twice a year, leaving me sadly shaking my head at MS obduracy.

    Why have you posted this on two of the forums?

    I was drunk. Sorry. But the problem was real. Fixed it though.
