Ximian Evolution time is wrong


I am using FC1 and using Ximian Evolution as the email program. I have my system time set with the redhat time sync server and using EST as the time zone. I am not using my time as UTC but when I send and receive email the time sent and received is four hours ahead of my system time. I checked Evolution for the time setting and the only thing I could find is the time zone setting, which is set to EST. Does anyone know or have any other suggestions for this problem? All help is greatly appreciated. BTW I am a new user to linux and Evolution. Thanks.

Tools > Settings > Calendar and Tasks you will find the time settings for Evolution.

I looked at the Calendar and Tasks tab, everything look okay. I still cannot figure out why my mail is sent and received four hours ahead than the system time is reporting. If I send a test email to myself the sent folder reports the email as being sent at 9:22 PM and the inbox reports the email received at 9:22 PM, while my system clock is set at 5:22 PM. I do not know how to fix this difference. My time zone on the Calendar and Tasks tab is set to America/New York and time format is "12 hour AM/PM". It looks as if Evolution is using GMT or something.

Are you running your own mail server or using an ISP's, etc? It could be their timestamps that are wrong if its not your own mail server.

I finally got it fixed today, I played around with the system time settings and all appears to be working fine now. Thanks for your help.
