Actually it does get the time from the host computer.
I had just forgotten that usually after I've rebooted into windows from
having previously been booted into Linux, my windows time is wrong, and
sometimes I forget to change it back until someone eMails me and asks me
which country I'm in.
So the OS changes the BIOS clock, and when windows reboots, in my case, the
clock is wrong, and then my eMails have the wrong time stamp.
But this only addresses Brian's message, as Marty's computer apparently has
the right time, but the eMail's time is wrong.

Marty,
I always assumed that the eMail program got the time from the host computer,
but possibly it is getting it from your router.
If so, maybe your router time is wrong.

Greg, I have just sent an email from this account to my other account
and it appeared with the time stamp of 1 hour earlier. This is buzzare.

Thanks for any ideas.

Marty,

Do you have another email account so that you could use Thunderbird to
send an email message to your second email address in order to inspect the
time-stamp? I ask the question because I just used Thunderbird to send an
email message to my Gmail account in order to check the time-stamp; it was
correct. Although I have no answer for your dilemma yet, I am reaching
out.

Hello. I am using JAWS 21 with Windows 10 and Thunderbird. I have just
noticed that the times on my email messages is off by 1 hour. My
computer clock is correct, but my emails show a time of 1 hour earlier.
I can't seem to find anything in Thunderbird to change this. I have
tried closing and reopening Thunderbird and restarting my computer, but
no joy. Any suggestions?

Thanks.
