The previous thread reminded me of something that's puzzled me for a while.

Three e-mails, in sequence, from Tweeks, Bruce, & pcdls are shown 
below.  It's clear which came first based on who's responding to whom.  
But the time stamps (and the sequence they show up in my in-box, since I 
sort them by time), are pcdls - 5/28/2010, 9:46pm (this was actually the 
last e-mail); Tweeks - 5/28/2010, 11:49pm (this was the first e-mail); 
and Bruce - 5/29/2010, 12:20am.

How the $#^% does that happen?  Shouldn't the timestamps be UTC time or
