+1 on that.

I think this is not set in Evolution but Evo just uses your timezone. I
had this problem the other way around before.

+1 on that too. I think Outlook does this nicely which groups them based
on when they were received. Today, Yesterday, <Weekdays>, Last week, Two
weeks ago, Three weeks ago, Last month.. etc. Always also showing the
day+date as 'Thu 22/9'.
