e-mail with time stamp from the future


Where do e-mails get the time stamp?

A friend sends me e-mails and the date is always the next day, is it a simple thing like his (Windows)
computer having the date set wrong or is it something more complicated.

It is not an international dateline thing I think because he is at GMT +5 and I am at GMT +7

It is a little unnerving getting emails from the future, should I ask him for lottery numbers?

I'll put my money on a misconfiguration on his isp's part. At least, that's where I think emails get their time stamps.
