WLM and time zones

When I receive email from the United Kingdom (Denmow Essex, actually, about 30 miles northeast of London), and the email says, "7:15 p.m.," is that my time or the sender's time? It's my time, right?

Yes, it is your time. All email clients I know, as well as webmail interfaces, present the time according to your system time. So, if I send you an email now, I can see it in my Sent folder as sent at 3:40 AM (CET, UTC +1) on Monday, but you can see it received at 9:40 PM (EST, UTC -5) on Sunday.

OK. Thanks.

Uh, 3:40 a.m.? I'd get up at 3:40 a.m. to go tuna fishing, but not much else these days!

i've been watching some public webcams with iSpy, and one thing confuses me. The time stamp on the videos is always 10 minutes greater than the difference in time zones. In other words, a video being sent from Linlithgow, Scotland should show exactly 6 hours difference in time with my time zone...
