I have a dedicated linux server.

On plesk it shows the correct local time on the server. However, for all the emails on the server for some reason show the time + 1 hour in outlook.

See screenshot beow on outlook server time is 1 hour behind

How can I get this fixed so that 10:44 is the time on outlook rather than 11:44?

What do the "Date" headers in the emails say? – wfaulk Sep 25 '09 at 15:20

Check to make sure both the server and client using the correct time zone, and that it's set to use/not use day light savings as would be correct for your location.

Are you in the US? Did you update your timezone data files last year when the US government changed when DST started and ended?

Without knowing what distribution you have, I can't provide better information about how to do that, beyond suggest that you look for "zoneinfo" updates.

I am in the UK and server is set for GMT time. – ServerDown Sep 25 '09 at 14:42
Daylight savings is BST (British Standard Time) – Andy Sep 25 '09 at 15:52
btw - the US changes (which were largely mirrored elsewhere) were done in 2k7 .. hard to believe it's been 2.5 years since that debacle :) – warren Oct 9 '09 at 12:01

Make sure your Time Zone settings in Outlook match those of the PC.

Tools >  Options > Calendar Options > Time Zone
