    Re: Time

    Hi Dottie,

    There are a couple reasons why this may be happening including:

    • The clock on either your computer or your neighbors computer is set incorrectly
    • The timezone on either your computer or your neighbors computer is set incorrectly
    • The clock or timezone on your ISP's mail server is set incorrectly
    • The timezone in the mail program used to to send or read the email is set incorrectly
    If you reply with the full email headers from one of the emails I can help you find out where the problem is.
