Daylight Saving Time problem (DST)
Problem reported by Duarte - 11/4/2021 at 6:20 AM
Being Fixed

SM has already requested more information. While they don't respond, I'm testing the workaroung indicated below in another post. 
Since Daylight Saving Time ended on October 31st, Outlook users have problems.
Time is wrong in the message list grid, but correct in the message display.
This only happens with internal messages sent from SM servers, if the message comes from Gmail or another provider the time is correct.
We are using the latest build and we are in the London and Lisbon time zone. Server and computer client time are correct.
These are the dates present in the headers of the received message.

I'm experiencing the same issue on several customers using Outlook (various versions) and SM.
SM build 100.0.7957.24848, all clients time are correct.

This was a problem last year as well...

Our time hasn't changed yet so I'm not sure if it is an issue again yet or not.

Workaround you can test:
1. Uncheck "Automatically adjust clock for Daylight Saving Time" in windows server 2012 (or "Adjust for daylight saving time automatically" in 2016/2019)
2. Restart SmarterMail service

I've had the same problem
Rebooting the server has solved it.
I've already open a ticket [090-291527C3-0B04] for reporting it.

Hello, I've received this reply to my ticket

I was able to reproduce this issue. It looks like it's caused by Daylight savings.
Example When PST switches to PDT it is not just changing time but changing timezones.
It looks like this is currently a bug. I have gone ahead and reported it as such.
My server is OK until the next change, I hope they would solve it sooner 😅
