i was having this weird problem with my email - some of the incoming emails were marked with the wrong time - 1 hour too early (i'm not sure if this was true for all emails or only the ones coming in from abroad).
i figured out it was a problem with my clock, it was set to GMT+2 whereas it's actually GMT+3 because of DST.
i figured that the time was calculated from the GMT timestamp on the email + the diff set on window's clock.
since i couldn't find a setting for DST anywhere, i simply moved myself from Jerusalem (GMT+2) to Baghdad (GMT+3)
is there any way to fix this in a more reasonable manner?
doesn't winXP have some setting for DST in the built-in clock?
i just went back to the clock/time settings and i do
see a checkbox for "Automatically adjust for daylight saving changes".
so i switch back to Jerusalem time, and this checbox is gone!!! back to Baghdad, the checkbox is back!!!
OK, so according to MS anyways Iraq has DST and Israel does not!!!!
(i had thought that technologically, at least, we were superior, but i guess Bill Gates says otherwise...
what's up with this?
