Hi,

The message list is displaying the wrong time. The time shown on the list is different from the message's header time.

According to Thunderbird, a message was received at 11:09PM, but here's what the header says:

From - Thu Mar 27 16:09:16 2014 X-Mozilla-Status: 0001 X-Mozilla-Status2: 00000000 X-Mozilla-Keys: Delivered-To: a.c.whiteman@gmail.com Received: by 10.50.221.166 with SMTP id qf6csp61713igc;

I'm getting the wrong time in just about all messages. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

The time zone is not the computer time. It is the computers offset in hours and minutes from Greenwich meridian

The unbutu site suggest http://askubuntu.com/questions/323131/setting-timezone-from-terminal

To change time zone from terminal, just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Once open, just follow the screens to change the time zone.

It sounds as though Thunderbird is disoriented about your time zone and not applying -0700 (assuming you're in Pacific time). If you were on Windows, I'd have you check to make sure you have the Windows time zone set correctly. No idea whether that is relevant on Linux.

By the way, on the first line, is the date part of the actual headers?

From - Thu Mar 27 16:09:16 2014 X-Mozilla-Status: 0001

That time doesn't seem to match up with anything. It is 10 seconds earlier than the message was sent.

Hi jscher2000,

The time zone seems to be OK in Linux since I can see the correct time and date in the taskbar.

And yes, the entire header was pasted as is.

Hi Matt,

I ran the command and selected America -> Los Angeles:

Current default time zone: 'America/Los_Angeles' Local time is now: Thu Mar 27 20:31:18 PDT 2014. Universal Time is now: Fri Mar 28 03:31:18 UTC 2014.

It seems that this fixed the problem. Thank you much!
