[SOLVED] Bizarre time probems with postfix.
It turns out the problem was on my client machine. I did originally have a problem with the locale info on the mail server but I fixed it when trouble shooting the problem. My client machine was set to the wrong timezone so even after I fixed it it appeared to be wrong and I assumed it was still postfix mucking things up.
[i] Hi, I'm having some weird problems with my postfix configuration. I'm running debian/lenny with postfix/dovecot mail server using mysql db for virtual mapping. The time on my system is correctly set, as are /etc/localtime. I have also configured tzselect to enure the TZ variables are correct. My mail logs all report information with the correct timestamp, I mention this as that is usually a sign of another problem already discussed on this forum. Nearly all my mail headers appear to have correct information on them, however, when i send mail it shows up in recipient email boxes with a date 21 hours ahead of the time it was sent. I live in a time zone thats GMT+1300 yet the date header reports the mail as sent at GMT-0800 but where this comes from is a total mystery. Here is an example header from an email I sent at 9:35:16am 27 Feb NZDT (8:35pm 26 feb UTC)Code:
