Build: 1999042216 Win32 May 22 build installed on Win32 NT4.0 1999042108 Linux may 21 build installed on Linux Redhat 5.2 Problem: If your machine is configured to observe day light saving time, message sent from Seamonkey are an hour a head. This occurs on messages sent from Seamonkey and received on Seamonkey OR on messages sent from Seamonkey to Nova 4.51. Work around: On Windows, go into the Date&Time control panel and disable "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes" and adjust the time accordingly. On Linux, the system is set by default to observe day light saving time. (I haven't figure out how to change it.) Steps to reproduce problem on windows 1) Log in as administrator 2) Open the Date&Time control and to make sure the option "Automatically adjust clock for daylight saving changes" is checked. If not check the box and click on the apply button. 3) Verify that the time is set properly 4) Log out as Administrator 5) Log in as yourself 6) Launch Seamonkey 7) Open Messenger 8) Start a new mail message 9) Address the message to yourself, add a title, and a short subject (Suggest addressing message to the email account you are using and to an account running Communicator) 10) Send the message 11) Retrieve the message Notice the message is dated an hour ahead.
Summary: Msg sent from Seamonkey are an hour off if you're on day light saving time → Msg sent from Seamonkey are an hour off if you're on day light saving time
Target Milestone: M6
i don't believe this is an m6 bug (feel free to disagree =)) pushing off to m8...
This does need to be fixed before we have a wider audience for using our mail product which I don't think is M6.
really pushing off to m8 this time instead of saying i am and not changing it =)
Rich, just checked in a fix for a GMT problem. Rich, do you think the problem in this bug report is the same thing? Can I mark this as fixed =)? What was the offset problem you were fixing? Adding rhp to the cc list in the hopes that this bug just got fixed by him and I don't have to do anything...

This is fixed. An old XP call got replaced incorrectly, so after fixing the calculation of GMT offset, it works fine now. The fix is in \mozilla\mailnews\compose\srcnsMsgCompUtils.cpp - rhp
Verified in the June 16 Seamonkey builds. I tested the following builds: Win32 June 16 Seamonkey build (1999061608) PPC June 16 Seamonkey build (1999061608) Linux June 16 Seamonkey build (1999061608) Messages sent from seamonkey and viewed in Communicator 4.61 are received with the correct Date and Time. I was not able to reproduce the problem. Note: Message viewed on Linux and Win32 display the correct time and date. On PPC, there is an outstanding parity bug 5934 that prevent the date and time from being displayed correctly.
Moving all Mail/News Networking bugs to Mail/News Networking-Mail This may re-open previously Verified bugs due to a Bugzilla bug...if so, I will fix those bugs.
