TimeZone in Eudora

Posted: 01-22-2009, 12:35 PM
Hello 22 Jan 2009

I have been trying to make Eudora to insert the correct timezone in the
headers of sent mails.
If the TimeZone setting is absent, the header carries the date/time header as
xx:xx +0000
If I insert the setting TimeZone=GMT-6, the header carries the date/time
header as xx:xx +0600
If I insert the setting TimeZone=GMT-5, the header carries the date/time
header as xx:xx +0500

But I want the date/time header as xx:xx +0530

GMT-0530,GMT-530 cause TimeZone format errors
GMT-05:30; GMT-05.30 ignore the figures after the semicolon/stop

All the documetnation says Enter the hours west or east of GMT. How do I get
5hrs 30 mins in?

Will be glad if someone can help: the outgoing mails from Eudora clients
carry the wrong time in the mail.

Regards,

Mohan

unfortunately, this isn't
eudora.com

perhaps, you should
use something better,
like microsoft's
"windows live mail"

Eudora gets its time zone settings from "Date and Time" in WINXP Control
Panel. You may also need to check the box: "Automatically adjust clock for
daylight saving changes" if you use daylight savings in your area.
When you change the time in Control Panel you would need to close and
re-start Eudora for the changes to take effect.

So where are you adjusting the time zone settings?
What Eudora version?

The system settings are OK

Mohan

Outlook/Outlook Express have no problem: they pick up the TimeZone settings
from WinXP and the date header is correctly +0530. Eudora picks up from
Eudora.ini. I do not know how Eudora has to be configured to pick up the TZ
setting from WinXP: I add the setting to Eudora.ini: and it works fine:
except that the TZ in India is 5hr30min, and Eudora uses the 24hour TZ: only
full hours.
So I end up either in Pakistan or in Bangladesh!! and my mails are received
half an hour before they are sent, or half an hour after.

My Eudora is pretty ancient: 4.1 I think

Thanks,
Mohan

I still had an early Eudora CD in my cupboard so I installed Eudora Pro Ver
4.01 and it picked up my time zone + 11:00 from WinXP.
I then changed my system time to +0530, however when I sent an email using
Eudora 4.01 it wouldn't properly display that time.

When I sent an email using Eudora 7.1.0.9 it correctly showed the time as
+0530. It must have been a bug in Eudora Ver 4.

It might be an idea to ask the experts for help in the news group
"comp.mail.eudora.ms-windows".

Or download the last version of Eudora from:
<http://www.eudora.com/download/>

Eudora Paid Mode is no longer available for purchase but if you download
the Sponsored Mode the following Username & Registration which appeared in
the Eudora news group does work.

Thanks!

Btw, I did not mention that the user of Eudora does not notice anything: all
times are displayed ok if the Time Display setting is Local Timezone, The
receiver notices the anomalous tiems in the headers.
